Research

My research group is involved in researching 'not yet cultivated', obligate plant pathogen, Candidatus phytoplasma (Mollicutes) biology involving its epidemiology, detection and diagnosis, weed, woody and cultivated plant hosts, new insect vectors, factors involved in its transmission, genomics, effector protein biology and taxonomy, since 2013. The group is engaged in new and effective and efficient strategies for phytoplasma detection and diagnosis, genome enrichment, sequencing strategies, mining phytoplasma genome and genome-based phytoplasma taxonomy. The group is aimed to work further on mining mollicute genomes with respect to understand their reductive evolution, diversity of effector genes and proteins, and the transmission of these bacteria from one host to another.
