Our research program develops biological control strategies for managing plant diseases in agriculture. Our projects range from field studies evaluating the success of biological control agents to laboratory experiments evaluating the molecular basis of biological control. Through these projects, we are developing knowledge of the processes by which naturally-occurring bacteria that live on plant surfaces suppress plant diseases.
