Exploring plant immune systems at the University of Washington
Immune Recognition in Plants
We study the function and evolution of plant immune systems, focusing on front-line receptors to detect threats
Molecular Genetics of Plant Immunity
We use tools and approaches from genetics, genomics, biochemistry, and molecular biology to study immunity in crops and model plant species
Combating Pests in Agriculture
Our work inspires strategies to protect crops against emerging pests and pathogens

Happy new year from the lab!
Our receptor story, previously in bioRxiv, is finally published in PNAS!
“A receptor-like protein mediates plant immune responses to herbivore-associated molecular patterns”
