Plant-Microbe Interactions/Plant-Vector-Microbe Interactions

Plants and microbes interact in intricate and continually changing ways. For certain plant diseases arthropod or nematode vectors add to the complexity. Our goal is to unravel these relationships using cutting edge tools in molecular biology, microscopy, genetics, genomics, and bioinformatics.
