We are interested in understanding the genetic basis for bacterial interactions with other organisms (be they plants, insects, fungi, other bacteria), and on how evolution shapes these interactions. By better understanding the rules and molecules that structure such relationships, we hope to develop new ways to manipulate these interactions (e.g. through the development of specific antimicrobial compounds) or shape their evolutionary dynamics through time.

Unravel the phylodynamics and transmission-specific determinants of emerging plant virus/fastidious bacteria-insect vector complexes, and translate new knowledge to abate pathogen spread in food systems.

Upon infection, viruses must transport their genomes into cells and produce progeny, often under a strict time deadline. We study how the viral proteins interact with with each other and with host cell proteins to efficiently accomplish these processes.

I examine the molecular functions of the different cells found in the tissues and organs of plants and animals and how they combine these functions to optimize the health and vigor of the organism.

My research is directed at producing enhanced traits in soybean that improves its use and sustainability to provide for growing global needs. In soybeans have produced enhanced seeds that contain much more protein content while minimizing or eliminating several food allergens and anti-nutritional proteins. This will provide better food and animal feed.

We are a plant genomics lab who specialize in whole genome sequencing and assembly; with analyses of structural variation, gene modeling and transcriptomes. Our work on major projects of rice, corn, barley, etc, allows us to share our technical expertise with other researchers.

My research focus is on functional foods—designing crops to deliver more than mere calories—by both adding nutritional compounds and eliminating anti-nutritional compounds. I work on enhancing seeds of two of the most globally important crops, soybean and corn.
