I am a second year Ph.D. student woking on the rice and Magnaporthe interaction. I am incorporating CRISPR mutagenesis into plant pathology to revolutionize the discovery of genes and effector function in pathogens. Currently, I am elucidating the role of MoNLP and MoZFE protein families in pathogenicity and virulence on rice.
