Welcome to the lab of Mary WIldermuth at UC Berkeley.

We study plant-microbe interactions at the molecular level and are focused on how the microbe manipulates the plant to promote its own growth and reproduction. In parallel, we examine plant defenses that limit the extent of growth and reproduction of an adapted pathogen on its host.

April 2022 - Undergraduates present at RCNR Undergraduate Research Poster Session

Undergraduates Amanda Hill and Elena Ochoa presented their research at the RCNR Spring Undergraduate Research Symposium Poster Session. Amanda Hill's research included examining powdery mildew effector translocation to the chloroplast. Elena Ochoa's work explored the use of adjuvants and formulations to enhance dsRNA stability for spray-induced gene silencing of powdery mildew.
