Staff

My name is Mogens S. Hovmøller. I am professor and leader of GRRC.

My expertise is in population genetics, evolutionary biology and epidemiology of crop pathogens in a changing environment. Focus on genetic variability for traits under selection as well as non-selective traits (random DNA-fragments), rates of evolution and dispersal. Assessment of host resistance as expressed from leaf tissue to crop canopy. Host-pathogen systems: Rusts and powdery mildews and new emerging diseases on cereals with emphasis on wheat rusts.

My name is Annemarie Fejer Justesen. I am Senior Scientist. My expertise is in molecular plant pathology, fungal genetics, genetic diversity and evolutionary processes in fungi, development of molecular tools for identification, detection and quantification of species, strains, chemotypes etc.

At GRRC I work on molecular genetic diversity of yellow rust populations, rust species identification in Barberry and grasses, development of an experimental system for genetic studies. More...

My name is Yan-Jun (Angie) Chen. I work as a Postdoc at GRRC. My current interest is in molecular and genomic analysis of Puccinia striiformis. I joined GRRC to study aggressiveness and temperature-tolerance in P. striiformis using a transcriptomic approach by Next Generation Sequencing.

My name is Tine Thach. I am PostDoc and my work deals with population genetics and epidemiology of Puccinia striiformis in cereals and grasses along with host boundaries and off-season survival. More...

My name is Julian Rodriguez Algaba. I am a research assistant dealing with harvesting of yellow rust isolates on wheat, rust field trials, DNA extraction and PCR analysis of barberry leaves, assessment of yellow rust in the field and in the greenhouse. More...

My name is Ellen Frederiksen. I am senior laboratory assistent, responsible for the foreign (outside Europe) yellow-, leaf- grass- and stem rust isolates, powdery mildew on wheat and barley, multiplying, harvesting. AFLP, databases. Greenhouse and laboratory coordination. More...

My name is Anne-Pia Larsen. I am senior laboratory assistant responsible for the yellow rust, leaf rust and mildew stock cultures. I also participate in field trial work at the GRRC. More...

My name is Steen Meier. I am gardener and I am responsible for all logistics about plant growth, climate chamber management, irrigation and fertilizing. More...

My name is Chris Sørensen. I am a PhD student dealing with infection biology and aggressiveness of Puccinia striiformis, Microscopy and Image analysis. More...

My name is Poul Lassen. I am database expert and web programmer responsible for the Wheat Rust Toolbox. I will be responsible for databases and web tools to be developed for data storage and data management at GRRC.

My name is Jens Grønbech Hansen. I am project manager and international coordinator regarding the Wheat Rust Toolbox and related activities at GRRC.
