My lab specializes in research on three major fruit and vegetable crop diseases: bacterial wilt of cucurbits, sooty blotch and flyspeck of apples, and anthracnose fruit rot of strawberries. Scope of our research ranges from pathogen detection to sustainable disease management tactics, disease epidemiology, pathogen genetics, evolutionary biology, and functional genomics.
