Available positions for M.Sc. and Ph.D. students to work on the molecular basis of fungal-plant interactions. We are studying how plant phenolic compounds act as small-molecule signals to reprogram gene expression in a fungal pathogen of maize. Our approaches include: fungal genetics and construction of transgenic lines, RNAseq, analysis of signaling pathways, and plant pathology.
