Dr. Eric Patterson

Eric Patterson

Eric Patterson is an Assistant Professor in Weed Science in the Department of Plant, Soil, and Microbial Sciences at Michigan State University where he teaches weed science to Undergraduate and Graduates. His research focuses on more basic aspects of weed science including weed genomics, molecular biology of resistance mechanisms, rapid molecular weed diagnostics, and herbicide mode of action discovery. His lab is especially interested in how genome rearrangements (i.e. transposable elements and copy number variation) form and are utilized as novel sources of genetic variation for weed adaptation to abiotic stresses.
