Molecular plant-microbe interactions


Molecular plant-bacteria interactions

Model system: endophytic diazotrophic bacteria (Azoarcus spp. and related genera) and Gramineae such as rice and Kallar grass:

Molecular mechanisms of plant-bacteria interactions (Functional genomics of bacteria and rice, detection and analysis of bacterial in planta gene expression, deciphering molecular cross-talk, colonization and host recognition)

Functional diversity of  endophytic diazotrophs, community structure and activity in situ (cultivation-independent molecular detection of bacteria and their activities (nifH-microarray), classical isolation techniques, polyphasic taxonomy)

Regulation of bacterial gene expression (transcriptome and proteome analysis, genetic and biochemical analysis of signal transduction
