Plant Defense Responses Against Microbial Pathogens

These researchers study the responses of plants to microbial pathogens. Effective defense depends upon rapid recognition of pathogen attack, which activates a complex signal transduction network controlling expression of defenses. In the course of this work, the researchers analyze DNA sequence data and gene expression profiling. They use MSI resources for these analyses.
