We study how filamentous plant pathogens, such as the Irish potato famine pathogen Phytophthora infestans, infect plants, and the plant processes that are modulated by these pathogens.

We aim to exploit state of the art findings on pathogen genomics and effector biology to develop novel disease resistant crops.
