The Keel lab investigates plant-beneficial pseudomonads that live in close association with roots. The bacteria protect crop plants from pathogenic fungi and some are virulent towards pest insects.

We try to identify molecular traits required for plant-beneficial and insect-pathogenic activities and mechanisms controlling their expression in response to the respective host.
