We are studying crops’ gene function related to plant metabolism and plant-microbe molecular interactions with the goal of improving crops’ nutritional quality and resistance to pathogens.
Our research involves a combination of molecular biology, genetics, transcriptomics, protein and metabolite biochemistry.
PhD position available
I am looking for a PhD student to start fall 2023 to work on potato pathogen molecular interactions. This position is funded by NIFA and restricted to citizens and nationals of the US. Please contact me for questions.
