EASTBIO Understanding barley-Puccinia interaction: the interaction between pathogen effectors and the host immune system

  Research Group: Institute of Molecular Plant Sciences
Barley (Hordeum vulgare) is the fourth most important arable crop worldwide and second in the UK. Diseases, including those caused by the brown rust pathogen Puccinia hordei, cause barley yield losses of up to 40%. Read more

EASTBIO: Understanding how plant pathogen effector proteins contribute to host range and nonhost disease resistance

Crop diseases destroy more than 25 % of our food each year. Protecting crops with pesticides represents a considerable financial and environmental challenge. To develop new strategies to combat disease it is important to understand the molecular and cell biology of how microbial plant pathogens cause disease.  .
