Kathrin Thor


I did my PhD in molecular plant physiology and since then have mainly been working on potential ion channels and calcium signalling. My investigation of the flg22-induced calcium signature drew my interest to plant immunity signalling and my current work will focus on elucidating novel components of the immunity network.
