Dr. Raycenne Rosa Leite PhD
I'm Plant Pathologist with a focus on the management of plant diseases and taxonomy of plant pathogens. Currently, I’m working on the Promise project where my research focus in another branch of biotic stress. In this project, the microbes appear as a promising alternative interacting with the plant host, Sorghum and managing an important parasitic weed, Striga. In the Promise group, different approaches are in use to find a sustainable solution to the problem of striga in sorghum and, thus helping farmers that have on sorghum their livelihood.
