The Kachroo lab is housed in the new Plant Science building on Veterans Drive. We are located in the Mycology/Plant Molecular Biology wing on the second floor. The Containment Facility where we grow all our plants is located on the first floor.

We keep ourselves busy by,

1. Studying fatty acid mediated defense signaling in Arabidopsis
