Title of Seminar: Dynamic regulation of plant defense response

Description: Under pathogen challenge, infected plant cells can undergo programmed cell death (PCD) to restrict pathogen growth, whereas the intact cells will turn on anti-PCD genes to prevent the spread of cell death and activate systemic acquired resistance. In my seminar, I will show data on how cell death and survival is regulated through perception of the plant immune signal, salicylic acid, which controls the nuclear concentration of the key immune regulator, NPR1. I will also present new data on the mechanism by which NPR1 regulates defense gene transcription.
