The Department of Plant Science and Landscape Architecture (PSLA) Lecture Series Presents
Dr. Frank Martin, Research Plant Pathologist, USDA-ARS, Salinas, CA

Seminar Title: "Mitochondrial genomics of Phytophthora and the search for molecular tools for pathogen 27 identification and detection"

Research Interests:
Ecology, biology, biological control, and genetics of fungal soilborne pathogens and other rhizosphere microflora. The current research responsibility with the USDA-ARS is the development of alternatives to methyl bromide for the strawberry and vegetable industry and the development of molecular markers for detection of pathogens controlled by methyl bromide. Specific interest is conducting research with phylogeny and detection of Pythium and Phytophthora and conducting research on detection and population biology of Verticillium dahliae.
