Areas of research: Ecology and Management of Plant-Associated Microbes, Biocontrol of Plant Pathogens, Agricultural Microbiomes
Areas of Research:
Developmental biology, cell biology, collective migration, organogenesis, genetics, signal transduction pathways
The Macabenta Lab is interested in uncovering the genetic mechanisms that control collective migration, quality control, and organ assembly by using Drosophila as a model system.
