My work aims to investigate the role of Brassicaceae SYMBIOSIS (SYM) genes in pathogenicity, as they appear to form part of an ancient microbial recognition pathway. Specifically, I aim to discover if any of the known SYM genes are involved in pathogenic interactions, including between canola and the devastating disease, blackleg, caused by the fungus Leptosphaeria maculans. In parallel, my work also aims to better characterise molecular and genetic components of Leptosphaeria maculans.
