Molecular mechanisms of microbe - plant interactions
Our research aims to understand the molecular basis of interactions between plants and their biotic environment. We are studying virulence mechanisms of pathogenic microbes and how they interfere with the immune system of the host. The main interest is to elucidate fundamental mechanisms of compatibility, i.e. to understand the key features that determine infection or resistance, respectively.
