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
