About me

The Nobori Lab will be opening at The Sainsbury Laboratory (TSL) in mid-2024 ! ! ! 

Here is an announcement by TSL. 

Welcome to my research website! I am a postdoc in the lab of Joe Ecker at the Salk Institute (San Diego, CA). I study plant-microbe interactions by employing/developing single-cell and spatial omics technologies. 

I did my graduate research in the group of Kenichi Tsuda at the Max Planck Institute for Plant Breeding Research (Cologne, Germany), where I developed methods for analyzing bacterial transcriptomes and proteomes in planta. My studies revealed how plants influence the responses of pathogens and microbiota. 

Plant-microbe interactions

How do cells communicate within and between organisms? That is the core question in my research using plants and microbes. Plant-microbe co-evolution has given rise to various sophisticated genetic programs and molecular innovations, many of which remain elusive. I aim to elucidate genetic programs in plants and microbes that are critical for their interactions and to manipulate such programs to understand them further or control the outcomes of plant-microbe interactions, which will impact basic understandings of life and plant breeding.
