Exploring the Effect of Light Quality on Plant Immunity

Semester: Fall 2023

Presentation description

My research project is dedicated to exploring the relationship between light and plant immunity, specifically examining the impact of shade conditions on the immune response of the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana and pepper plants. As of right now, there is little known about the molecular link between plant immunity and light quality. Understanding how light affects a plant's immune response against pathogens is crucial for increasing crop yield.
