Benedict Asare


In previous studies, I worked on resistance in maize focusing on the msv1 gene which confers resistance against the maize streak virus disease. At TSL, I am interested in studying about how plants can build immunity against plant pathogens as well as some transferable skills geared towards tackling global plant health issues.
