Department of Plant Pathology  [278]

Persistent link to this collection:

The Department of Plant Pathology at the University of Minnesota has a strong research and teaching emphasis in disease resistance, molecular genetics and genomics, control of diseases caused by biotic pathogens, wood deterioration, effect of air pollution on plants, biological control, ecology and evolution of plant-associated microbes, and in the physiology and molecular biology of plant-microbe interactions. The department also has a strong outreach emphasis through the extension service, plant disease clinic, and other avenues.

Genome editing in alfalfa (Medicago sativa) to hyper-accumulate phosphate

Samac, Deborah A; Miller, Susan S; Dornbusch, Melinda R; Curtin, Shaun J (2019)
Rock phosphate, the main source of phosphate (P) for crop fertilizers, is a finite resource that is predicted to be depleted in 50-100 years. P is a critical nutrient in agriculture and its application can dramatically ...

Lignin reduction in alfalfa (Medicago sativa) does not affect foliar disease resistance

Samac, Deborah A; Ao, Samadangla; Dornbusch, Melinda R; Grev, Amanda M; Wells, M Scott; Martinson, Krishona; Sheaffer, Craig C (2018)
Disruptions in the lignin biosynthetic pathway have been shown to reduce disease resistance in a number of crops. Recently, genetically modified alfalfa (Medicago sativa) varieties have been marketed with reduced lignin ...

Alfalfa leaf protein concentrate: A sustainable protein source for aquaculture feeds

Samac, Deborah A; Coburn, Jessica E M; Phelps, Nicholas; Wells, M Scott (2019)
Interest in local, sustainable aquaculture is continuing to expand across the United States. To ensure profitability and high consumer acceptance, a plant-based non-GMO source of protein is needed for replacing fishmeal ...
