More Information

Braun taught Pl P 408 (Principles of Plant Pathology) and Micro 201 (Introduction to Microbiology) each fall and spring semester and co-taught Micro 101 (The Microbial World) each fall semester with Dr. Nancy Boury.  Braun was an academic advisor for several undergraduate Microbiology majors.

He served as co-coordinator (with Dr. Cindy Haynes, Horticulture) of the ACES Learning Community, a residential learning community open to freshman students majoring within the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences.

Braun collaborated with others in the department studying resistance gene expression in soybeans. His role in these projects was to carry out cytological analyses of the host-pathogen interactions.  He also conducted a research project testing whether β-amino butyric acid could induce broad-spectrum disease resistance in soybeans.
