: The subject is the role of plant secondary metabolites in interactions between 
: roots and their biotic environment. We will concentrate on a family of small 
: molecules called calystegins, which are nutritional mediators of 
: plant/bacterial associations  [Tepfer et al. (1988), J. Bacteriol. 170, 1153-
: 1161; Goldmann et al. (1990), Phytochemistry 29, 2125-2127]. 
: Calystegins provide an exclusive carbon and nitrogen source to soil bacteria 
: that can catabolize them, and they are potent glycosidase inhibitors [Molyneux 
: et al. (1993), Arch Biochem Biophys 304, 81-88]. Research will involve 
: plant genetic engineering, microbial ecology and genetics and collaborations 
: with chemists. Applicants with experience in molecular biology are preferred.
