Sacco Plant Molecular Biology & Virology Lab

Welcome to the lab of Dr. Melanie A. Sacco in the Department of Biological Science at California State University, Fullerton!

The Sacco lab’s research interests are the study of virus-host interactions. The major area of study is plant-virus interactions, particularly in the context of disease resistance in plants. We also are investigating avian endogenous retroviruses. We are a Primarily Undergraduate University (PUI) with research conducted by undergraduate and master's students.
