My research focus is in the legume, Medicago sativa, also known as alfalfa. We are trying to develop a method for an easy characterization, identification, and quantification of the bacterium Pseudomonas syringae pv. syringae infecting alfalfa to be able to detect, predict and minimize the losses related to an outbreak.
