Research Overview

Plants have developed sophisticated systems to recognize many proteins secreted into the plant cell by bacterial pathogens. Recognition of these effector molecules and subsequent defense induction involve several plant proteins and is often accompanied by rapid cell death ?the hypersensitive response (HR). In order to understand the co-evolution of bacterial effectors and plant disease resistance R-genes, we are conducting parallel studies of phenotypic and genetic diversity in the reaction between bacterial pathogens and multiple crop species.
