James Brown

Prof. Brown’s research relates to the need to produce new crop varieties with elite standards of yield and quality and acceptable, all-round disease resistance. Much of his research concerns trade-offs between responses to different diseases and between disease resistance and other desirable traits, while his group also researches processes by which plants and parasites coevolve to become adapted to one another. Most of his work is on fungal pathogens of cereals, especially powdery mildew of barley and wheat, septoria tritici blotch of wheat and ramularia leaf spot of barley.
