"How Biotrophic Fungal Pathogens Colonize Plants" Regine Kahmann, Endowed Taylor-White Lecture

Research Area: Molecular phytopathology Smut fungi Smut fungi comprise a large group of biotrophic pathogens which parasitize mostly on grasses including a number of cereal hosts like maize, barley and wheat. They are characterized by a narrow host range, infect plants systemically and usually cause symptoms in male and female inflorescences only.

"Taking the heat. What will it mean for the Corn Belt?" Donald Ort

Growth and photosynthetic performance of plants are frequently diminished by commonly occurring environmental conditions. For instance, in a fairly diverse group of plant species, a persistent inhibition of photosynthesis occurs when plants are exposed to chilling temperatures. My laboratory is investigating the underlying causes and molecular basis for inhibition of photosynthesis by low...
