I am interested in why plants fail, which fits nicely with my position in the OSU Plant Clinic where we diagnose diseases/disorders of plants and identify arthropods.

We are in the early stages of integrating whole genome sequencing in our lab, with the goal of providing to our clients the power of this method for unlocking the secrets of pathogens. This knowledge can be used to make better management recommendations.
