Martin Chlivers is a visiting Assistant Professor at Michigan State University. He studies diseases of field crops, and the biology and genetics of fungal and oomycete organisms that cause disease. He utilizes both classic techniques such as culturing causal agents and the latest technologies, such as next generation sequencing of metagenomes, to improve disease management by understanding the organisms, factors, and host-pathogen interactions that drive disease.
