I am a graduate student in Steven R Scofield's laboratory. Our main focus in the lab is to determine which genes are essential for Fusarium Head Blight (scab) resistance in wheat by utilizing Virus Induced Gene Silencing (VIGS).  My thesis encompasses characterizing the SERK family's role in PAMP-Triggered Immunity to Fusarium graminearum in wheat.​
