Plant-Vector-Pathogen Interactions

The Tamborindeguy Laboratory studies transmission of plant pathogens by insects. Research is aimed at understanding ecological and molecular aspects of plant-insect-pathogen interactions. Current projects involve study of effect of pathogen titers on transmission and on vector and plant fitness; effect of plant induced defenses on herbivorous insect, their endosymbionts and pathogen transmission.
