Laboratory Development
  • Plant Immunity and Molecular Genetics,  NIT Rourkela,  Dr. Sahu's focus is specifically on two rice fungal diseases which constitute the most significant threats to rice production. Development of new pathovars of the fungus as a primary means to avoid resistance from the host is a threat to farmers. However, Nonhost resistance provides broad spectrum and durable disease resistance. Dr. Sahu’s research group focuses mainly on identifying the nonhost resistance genes from Arabidopsis which is found to be a nonhost against both rice pathogens and molecular mechanism of resistance during nonhost interaction. Study on the Involvement of a catalogue of fungal pathogenic molecules (effectors) with their cognate interactome in the host or nonhost during plant-pathogen interaction would delineate the outcome. Recent work has identified EMS mutants of Arabidopsis that are infected by the pathogens in the epidermal layer cells as well as mesophyll cells. Mapping and identification of the gene(s) are underway that would further lead in helping characterize the mechanism of disease resistance during nohost resistance. We use the advanced molecular genetics approaches to study the plant-pathogen interaction.
