- Complementing ecological studies with molecular techniques
- Developing molecular tools to detect microbial populations in tissue and the environment
- Using comparative genomics and computational biology to answer ecological and evolutionary questions
- Using genomic analysis to identify regions in genome associated with hybridization and introgression and the functional role of these regions in the human pathogenic fungi
We are exploring early innate immune responses, soil ecology, non-vertebrate infection assays using Galleria as a host and in vitro cell culture systems to develop techniques for future grants.
