 Lab member: 2004-2012.
Position Postdoctoral Research Associate
Education B.S. Crop Sciences, specialization in Plant Molecular Biology and Biotechnology, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign (1999 - 2003)
Ph.D. Plant Biology, University of California, Davis (2003 - 2011)
Research Topic Molecular and genetic analysis of plant-oomycete interactions using the lettuce-Bremia lactucae pathosystem
Research Summary I am working to identify and characterize avirulence genes in the obligate biotrophic oomycete Bremia lactucae. I will also investigate in parallel the host genes responsible for the detection of avirulence proteins and resistance to B. lactucae in lettuce. The long-term goal of this project is to broaden our understanding of the mechanisms of pathogenesis and host specificity in important plant-pathogen interactions.
