A postdoctoral position funded by NIH is available immediately to study
signal transduction pathways that mediate disease resistance in
Arabidopsis. We have recently identified four genes that are required
for function of the RPS5 disease resistance pathway. Mutations in three
of these genes also compromise resistance mediated by other R-genes.
This project will focus on the isolation and characterization of these
putative signal transduction genes. A strong background in molecular
biology, genetics and/or biochemistry is required. Additional
