四 本次分享会主要内容

As a graduate student of horticultural sciences, I became interested in plant genetics and molecular biology. My scientific research started off with citrus, jumped on Arabidopsis, and have recently (partially) come back to citrus, forming a full circle. My current research at the University of Maryland is mainly focused on understanding how plants activate antifungal resistance using the Arabidopsis-powdery mildew pathosystem. We have been trying to elucidate how the broad-spectrum protein RPW8 works at the host-pathogen interface (termed the extra-haustorial membrane) and morerecently how MLO proteins serve as susceptibility factors for powdery mildew. Iwill discuss recent progress on these two projects. If time permits, I  will briefly introduce a new collaborative project in my lab that aims to develop anovel strategy to control Citrus Greening (Huanglongbing).
