Trevor’s research examines the symbiotic interaction between plant roots and arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi, an association critical for mineral nutrient acquisition in widespread plant lineages. To address questions regarding the regulation and development of host-microbe symbiotic programming, he aims to spatially resolve plant and fungal gene expression during symbiosis, and to determine how these interactions induce the plant endocycle. His approach combines genetic manipulation, cell cycle microscopy, and spatial transcriptomics. Trevor is working with the Harrison and the De Vlaminck labs.
