New components of the (plant) immune system

Advisor: Detlef Weigel

PhD Program: International Max Planck Research School (IMPRS) 'From Molecules to Organisms'
Location: Max Planck Institute for Biology

Project description
A rapidly changing climate not only threatens plants directly through floods, droughts and temperature stress, but also through new pathogens that expand their range. In this interdisciplinary project, which combines cutting-edge analysis of a large number of newly assembled genomes with wet lab validation, you will identify and study new components of the plant immune system, building upon recent breakthroughs in understanding immunity across the tree of life.
