Fungi are rad. That is pretty much all you need to know before joining this group. No prior experience with fungi required, just an enthusiastic and curious mind.
We are an inclusive, open-mined, anti-racist group interested in the genomics of fungi. The lab's primary focus is on the genomics of plant pathogenic fungi that cause disease on grain crops (barley and wheat). We aim to understand what genomic elements enable large chromosomal re-arrangements and how this plasticity contributes to the evolution of pathogenicity.
