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”
Natalia Guayazán-Palacios, rising 2nd year Biology grad, has joined the lab. Welcome Natalia!
Adam’s new review on the evolution of cell surface immune networks is online at Current Opinion in Plant Biology and can be found here. We would love to discuss!
Prof. Steinbrenner will attend the 10th Conference of the Asia-Pacific Association of Chemical Ecologists in Hangzhou, China. He will present in Session 3: “Signaling and Perception in Plant-Herbivore Interactions.” Say hello if you are also attending, and come to hear about INR and our future plans to understand evolution of immune recognition across bean populations.
The lab’s first official member has joined! Antonio will join as a technician. Heis a recent graduate of the UW and comes in with experience in plant molecular genetics from his undergraduate research. Welcome Antonio!
We will present our INR preprint and other transcriptomic and genomic follow-ups at MPMI in Glasgow and ASPB in San Jose Aug 3-7 https://aspb.org/event/plant-biology-2019/
The core of Adam’s postdoctoral work is now posted on bioRxiv (https://www.biorxiv.org/content/10.1101/679803v1) in a manuscript entitled “A Receptor for Herbivore-Associated Molecular Patterns Mediates Plant Immunity.” We are excited to connect surface immune recognition to chewing herbivory through INR. We’re very happy it’s available on bioRxiv as it works its way through journal submission. Comments are welcome, please email or Twitter DM @ADSteinbrenner.
