Faculty Research

Dr. Suping Zhou focuses on the identification of molecular controls that allow plants to develop tolerance to drought, salt and toxic ions in the soil, and using this knowledge to develop plant lines that will perform well under stress conditions. Dr. Zhou’s approach identifies gene sequences involved in salt tolerance to develop markers for selection of tolerant traits. Her research also targets identifying proteins that have an altered expression as a result of stress.

Dr. Korsi Dumenyo is performing research focused on two important plant diseases by developing molecular tools to enhance the study of these organisms, examining the DNA of the pathogens to
identify the genetic constituents that enable them to cause disease, and identifying plant components that make them vulnerable to attack by specific pathogens.
