OPP Interviews: Niklaus J. Grünwald

Our first OPP Interview features Dr. Niklaus J. Grünwald, a plant pathologist with USDA ARS, Corvallis, OR, USA. Nik has made significant scientific contributions to the understanding of the population biology and evolution of Phytophthora infestans worldwide. His lab has developed R packages which have contributed considerably to advance and facilitate the analysis of genetic and genome sequence data with applications in taxonomy and evolution, beyond the field of plant pathology.
