The Plant Fungal Interactions Group (PFIG) is interested in the interactions of plants with non-conventional plant associated microbes, both pathogens and health promoting species, where our major focus is on yeasts. We use a multidisciplinary approach that relies heavily on genetics and genomics. We also have a long time interest in ROS signaling, especially in the role of ROS and cell death in plant resistance to fungal pathogens.
