My laboratory works on elucidating the molecular basis of plant immunity from both the host and pathogen side. Based on our knowledge of the plant immune system, we are developing a multi-layered approach to create durable and sustainable disease resistance in several crop species. I will present our strategies on how we employ genome editing to create disease-resistant plants.
