The Bogdanove Laboratory has moved to Cornell University. Website update is in progress. Thanks for your patience...
    Welcome!   Where Are We?

Welcome to the Bogdanove laboratory webpage.

Our research centers on the interactions of rice with pathovars of the bacterial pathogen Xanthomonas oryzae and on TAL effector DNA targeting and its applications. Click these terms or the Research tab above for details.

Please use the other tabs and links on this page for more information about our lab. Thanks for visiting!
