My group aims at deciphering the molecular interplay between effectors and the plant immune system, by using state-of-the-art genomics and molecular biology techniques. Most projects relates to organ- and cell type-specificity in plant-microbe interactions.

Most of our work focus on the interaction between potato and Phytophthora infestans (the oomycete responsible for late blight). Another “crop” of interest in the lab is Cannabis sativa, for which we are investigating the interaction with powdery mildew, and many other things!
