Guru Vighnesh Radhakrishnan

Postdoctoral Scientist
Cell and Developmental Biology

Guru's long-term goal is to understand how fungal pathogens invade crops and cause disease.

In his current role, Guru is conducting genomic and transcriptomic analyses to build an integrative model to explain how rust fungi are able to infect and cause disease on economically important crop plants such as wheat and barley.

He is also developing molecular methods and associated computational tools that are aimed at enabling the real-time surveillance of crop pathogens in agricultural fields
