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
