PROJECT SPOTLIGHT

Effector delivery by fungal rust pathogens

We are using molecular biology tools and confocal microscopy to mapy the regions in rust effectors required for delivery into host cells, and identify components of the effector secretion machinery. This project interfaces strongly with our stripe rust work on identifying effector molecules.
