My research is focused on pathogen effector bioinformatics. Pathogen effector bioinformatics include identification of pathogen effector proteins from pathogen genomes (bacteria, fungi, oomycetes, and nematodes), and their effector targets from host genomes (Arabidopsis, soybean, rice, maize, etc.) using alignment-free multivariate statistics, alignment-based methods, and machine learning approaches.
The Molecular and Cellular Imaging Center-Columbus (MCIC-Columbus) is a section of the Molecular and Cellular Imaging Center at the Ohio Agriculture Research Development Center (OARDC). The MCIC-Columbus houses analytical and molecular biology equipment for the Departments of Plant Pathology and Horticulture and Crop Science.
• Bioinformatics, metabolomics, proteomics and genomics research.
• Coordinates all MCIC-Columbus core laboratory activities, including the use and maintenance of equipment; trains and assists users.
• Conducts bioinformatics research to support genomics, proteomics, and metabolomics research.
• Conducts collaborative research with the faculty from the two departments.
• Provides bioinformatics, metabolomics, genomics, proteomics, and statistical support to faculty, staff, and students from the Department of Plant Pathology and Horticulture and Crop Science.
