Brief Summary

Matthew’s current research focus is the major crop pathogen Sclerotinia sclerotiorum. This pathogen has over 400 hosts, including economically significant crop plants like Brassica napus (canola). Current methods for controlling Sclerotinia stem rot (SSR) in Brassica napus rely heavily on cultural practices and fungicide application. To compliment these methods, Matthew aims to determine whether genetic resistance to SSR exists within Brassica napus. Furthermore, genetically modified Brassica napus plants that are able to resist SSR will be developed and tested.
