Plant – Fungal interactions

The research in the group has an emphasis on generating a mechanistic understanding on molecular level on plant defense to various fungal or fungal-like pathogens, of importance for Swedish agriculture.

Soilborne pathogens in general impose increasing threats to crop production. In the BioSoM program, we are studying sclerotia biology as well as fungal genomics of Rhizoctonia and Plasmodiophora brassicae.
