Ecological and Agriculture Genomics: Research in my lab focuses on understanding molecular mechanisms and evolution of plant biotic and abiotic stress response using crop wild relatives as study systems. We apply our research in real world problems such as crop improvement and plant conservation.
I am recruiting prospective graduate students (Master, ph.D). If you are interested in joining this active international team, please contact me at bsong5(at)uncc(doc)edu.
