Matthew Rouse

Matthew RouseDr. Rouse's lab is currently researching (1) wheat and barley resistance to stem rust including emerging races of the stem rust pathogen such as TTKSK (Ug99) and (2) physiologic specialization of the barley leaf rust pathogen in the United States. Rust pathogens often adapt to overcome genetic resistance used in cereal varieties. Their research seeks to identify and characterize resistance that will be durable and not break down.
