Ingo's research aims to identify and clone more durable resistances towards major potato pathogen. 

Current projects include:

  • Identification and cloning of new genetic variations in Solanum species for resistance to Phytophthora infestans.
  • Identification of the Phytophthora infestans effectors underpinning Ph2 and Ph3 resistance in tomato.Identification of potato NB-LRR genes and development of a second generation sequencing approach to clone functional R genes more rapidly
  • Phytophthora infestans effector Avr3a diversity and function.
  • Enhancing the recognitions specificity of known Solanum resistance genes in vitro

Leading Ideas

  • Crop and grassland production and disease control
  • Crop Genetics
