Kristi Ledman received her M.S. in Plant Pathology My research is focused on bacterial leaf streak disease in small grains. I will be investigating the host range of the pathogen, Xanthomonas translucens. I take a particular interest in surveying weedy grass species in the field to find where the pathogen survives.
Thesis: Pathovar Identification and Genetic Diversity of Xanthomonas translucens strains isolated from weedy grasses and cultivated wild rice in Minnesota.
