Identification of fungal species

Fungal and plant molecular biology.

  • Plant (Brassica) and fungal (Ascomycota) transformation for trait evaluation
  • Plant and fungal DNA fingerprinting for germplasm evaluation and forensics
  • Plant soil health: Identification of fungal pathogens associated with yield decline of cropping systems
  • Biosecurity: Mitigating risk of incursion of exotic fungal plant pathogens; Development of qPCR diagnostic tools
  • Fungal pathogen genomics: Genome sequencing; Taxonomy; Identification of pathogenicity factors
  • Biotechnology - Genetic transformation of fungal pathogens and Brassica for cold tolerance.
