Plant Immune Signaling
This group uses MSI resources in several projects related to plant immunity. They use MSI software for routine DNA sequence analysis of recombinant DNA molecules that they use in their experiments. They plan to use the new CLC Genomics Workbench for assembly and analysis of the genome seqeunce of a bacterial plant pathogen called Clavibacter michiganensis. They also do some RNAseq studies of wild-type and mutant plants responding to pathogen attack, in order to understand the nature of the defects in the mutant plants. As part of this work, the researchers use componenents of the Galaxy system.
