Welcome to the Cantu Lab

Cantu Lab Fall 2017
We are a research group that studies the interaction between plants and microorganisms. We integrate principles of systems biology, genomics and quantitative genetics and use bioinformatics, biochemistry and molecular biology to study plant and microbial activities in a variety of contexts, from disease resistance, wood decomposition, to fruit ripening, and flavor development.
