Genomics of the Wheat Stem Rust Pathogen

The Szabo lab is trying to understand how rust fungi are able to infect their host plant though the use of genomic and transcript analysis. Their current focus is on the identification and characterization of effector genes in the wheat stem rust pathogen, Puccinia graminis. MSI resources are used for transcriptome and SNP analysis of this fungus.
