Sophien Kamoun, "Keeping up with the plant destroyers - the two-speed genomes of filamentous plant pathogens"

April 18, 2016 - 4:00pm to 5:00pm
Clark Center Auditorium S001

Free and open to the public.

Professor Sophien Kamoun is a Group Leader at The Sainsbury Laboratory, in Norwich, UK. His group studies how filamentous plant pathogens, such as the Irish potato famine pathogen Phytophthora infestans, infect plants, and the plant processes that are modulated by these pathogens. They aim to exploit state of the art findings on pathogen genomics and effector biology to develop novel disease resistant crops
