Biography

Current activities:

Dr Jonathan Anderson's current research interests are in:

• Soil Biology for high functioning agricultural soils.

• Exploring novel biology based fungicide technologies.

• Biological control of crop diseases through natural soil microbes or endophytes and the metabolites they produce.

• Research to improve the management of soil-borne diseases.

• Understanding the molecular mechanisms underlying plant defence against microbial pathogens and the application of this knowledge to improve crop resistance.

Background:

Dr Anderson received his Doctorate on regulatory genes controlling the responses of the model plant Arabidopsis to fungal pathogens. Since then his work has focused on legume-microbe interactions, functional genomics, pathogenomics, crop pre-breeding for enhanced resistance to necrotrophic pathogens, novel biology-based fungicide alternatives, management of soil-borne fungal pathogens and soil biology.

Dr Anderson currently holds an Adjunct Associate Professor position with The UWA Institute of Agriculture.
