Research Interests / Job description
Biotic stress research:

* Studying the genetic base of plant microbe interactions. Focus on tomato-Botrytis cinerea system.


* Evolutionary forces that shape the genomes of microbial phytopathogens (fungi, and bacteria).

* Molecular mechanisms of plant defense.
