More Information

All research in the MacIntosh laboratory is multidisciplinary and highly collaborative. Although most of our research uses plant models (mainly Arabidopsis and soybean), we also work on other eukaryote models to answer specific questions. Our research is centered around two big questions:

  • How do eukaryotic cells recycle ribosomes?
  • What are the molecular bases of compatible and incompatible interactions between plants and insects?
