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
