Research in my lab investigates molecular mechanisms that underpin plant-microbe interactions. Our research focuses on immune signaling in corn and Arabidopsis. We specialize in mass spectrometry based proteomics to globally quantify protein abundance and post-translational modifications (including phosphorylation and acetylation). Using systems biology we integrate these data with other types of omics datasets, such as transcriptome profiling, to generate hypotheses to test using various biochemical and genetic approaches.
