The Plant Pathology group at the ETH is best known for its research in pathogen population genetics, apple resistance breeding, and biological control of soil-borne pathogens.
Our research spans the spectrum in agriculture, from molecular- to ecosystem-orientation and from mathematical theory to field application. We consider this research breadth to be a strength as it allows us to train students in a cross-disciplinary fashion.
