About Dr Peter Dracatos

Dr Peter Dracatos is particularly interested in the different mechanisms and genetics of resistance to rust pathogens in agronomically important crop species. He is also very interested in the different agents of change in rust pathogens and how they acquire virulence for resistance genes in their hosts. As a trained agronomist Peter is interested in research that has a direct impact on the improvement of global food security while assisting national breeding programs in their fight to produce cereals with durable rust resistance.
