Our group studies wheat genomics and plant innate immunity. We are interested in understanding the molecular basis of plant disease resistance in wheat, a grass that is both amenable to basic research and highly important to agriculture.

Main areas of research are:

1)      Development of functional genomic tools for wheat

2)      Understanding the fundamental molecular pathways of plant immunity in wheat

3)      Isolation of new sources of disease resistance from mutagenized populations

4)      Accelerating gene cloning and trait transfer via new genomic technologies

 

Our group has recently relocated to the University of California, Berkeley and our new lab home page can be found here.
