Welcome to the Jamann Lab!
Understanding how plants interact with microbes is an intriguing challenge. The Jamann lab focuses on maize disease resistance and the goals are to mine genetic variation for resistance, determine how those genes are influencing the interaction, and better understand how pathosystems co-evolve. We take an integrated approach to studying the interaction by combining genetics and genomics, molecular biology, quantitative genetics, and evolutionary biology. Our ultimate goal is to develop durable broad-spectrum resistance in maize.
