Our research focuses on mechanisms leading to plant-pathogen (clubroot disease) interactions or the interaction with beneficial microorganisms (fungal endophytes). We are interested in the role of plant hormones and secondary metabolites for development of pathogenic or endophytic interactions of fungi with host plants. For better understanding of the events leading to pathogenesis, we have begun to identify differentially expressed genes during host/pathogen interaction. We are also interested in the role of plant hormones in biotic and abiotic stress situations.
