What the Wilt?

Come to a guest seminar hosted by the Department of Plant and Environmental Protection Sciences, where Dr. Tiffany Lowe-Power of UC-Davis will discuss “Life Cycle Stage-Specific Adaptations of the Bacterial Wilt Pathogen.” Bacterial wilt is an economically important agricultural pest in Hawai‘i, affecting ginger (pictured), pepper, and tomato.

  • Date: Thursday, December 19
  • Time: 10:30 a.m.
  • Location: St. John 307

Dr. Lowe-Power’s research interests include bacteria–plant interactions, xylem pathogens and mutualists, host range, genetics, metabolism, microbial ecology, and microbes. Her lab uses the Ralstonia-plant model as a reductionist microbiome system to investigate molecular microbial ecology, host specificity, and host physiology. Be there or be wilted!
