Area of Specialization

Molecular biology, genetics and proteomics of plant-microbe interactions

Research interests:

Research in the Liu laboratory primarily focuses on the molecular mechanisms of plant innate immunity upon pathogen invasion. We are interested in elucidating each component function of the host immune signaling complexes and attempt to understand how plants utilize the immune complexes to fight against pathogen colonization.  The Arabidopsis-Pseudomonas syringae model system is currently employed in the laboratory to investigate the plant and microbe interaction at molecular level. Recently, we also initiated a project to characterize the functions of secreting proteins from rice blast fungus (Magnaporthe oryzae).
