My research will be focused on Bacterial Leaf Streak (BLS) of wheat. BLS is an emerging major bacterial disease of wheat. There is a lack of resistant cultivars and effective chemical control measures to manage this disease. In addition, the biology and epidemiology of this pathogen is not well understood. An attempt to study the biology of the pathogen and source of resistance will be made.
