Joel Griffitts

Joel Griffitts Principal Investigator
I graduated from Stanford University in 1999, finished graduate school at UC San Diego in 2004 and then returned to Stanford to work on symbiotic nitrogen fixation as a post-doc. During that time, I developed several projects centered on symbiotic invasion and host–microbe compatibility. I have been on the BYU faculty since 2006, where my lab is investigating various aspects of host–microbe communication.

Matthew Crook

Matthew Crook Graduate Student
I am a fourth-year Ph.D. student in the Griffitts lab. I am studying the molecular determinants of host range in the symbiotic relationship between the bacterium Sinorhizobium meliloti and members of the plant genus Medicago.
