Krasileva Lab

231 Koshland Hall, Berkeley CA 94720 kseniak [at] berkeley.edu.

September 2018 - Welcome to the Krasileva lab group members, established and new

A warm welcome to Andrew Deatker who made it across the Atlantic. Andrew has been with the group for almost three years, and he is our specialist in working with wheat, including field work and molecular biology. He is also behind the lab heraldry, such as the Lab Logo in the top left corner (the plant with phylogenetic roots) and many others, that you can see here, here, and here. You can follow Andrew @RustChaser

Another warm welcome to Aman Sidhant and Celine Bellegarda, who have started in the lab as undergraduate researchers.

Aman is a computer science major who will be working with us on the mechanisms governing crop genome evolution. He already contributed to the lab by signing us up on Slack.

Celine is majoring in Molecular Environmental Microbiology and she is a winner of our SPUR program project call: "Conserved molecules in plant immunity."

Who we are and what we do?

Krasileva lab an inter-disciplinary group of people who combine new technologies, basic and translational research. Our common goal is to understand plant innate immunity, a system that maintains plant health. We focus on evolution and function of plant immune genes, as well as the mechanisms that regulate genetic diversity.

From July 2018, we are becoming a part of the Department of Plant and Microbial Biology at the University of California Berkeley.  If you are interested in becoming part of the group, here is how you can approach us:

  • undergraduate research: reach out to any group member. You can also use our contact form.
  • graduate students: for rotation, please come and see me. For applying to Berkeley, please, see description of our graduate programs in Microbiology and Plant Biology. At our department, there is no direct admission of graduate students to the labs.
  • postdocs: if you would like to write postdoctoral fellowships with us, please send me the fellowship you have in mind and your CV.
  • staff: occassionally, positions become available. Please, watch this space or send us a note.

If you have any questions about Krasileva Lab and what we do, e-mail, tweet, come and meet us in person. Look for the updates on the conferences we plan to attend on this page. We are always happy to see you on campus.
