Molecular genetics of plant-parasitic fungi; evaluation of pathogenicity factors

  • Our major research interest is in the area of host-pathogen interactions, specifically, interactions involving fungal pathogens. We are primarily interested in the investigation of the genetic and molecular elements that control pathogenicity. Identification and characterization of the genes that are involved in pathogenicity and host specificity, and the mechanism of susceptibility and resistance are the focus of our current research efforts.

Our research laboratory is funded by the following organizations:
