Fungal Biology

Fungal biology research focuses on yeasts, filamentous fungi and lichens. Projects investigate the physiology, biochemistry, molecular genetics and genomics of these organisms, for example in the use of fungi as cell factories for the production of proteins and pharmaceuticals. Other areas include: stress response mechanisms and cell individuality in yeasts and filamentous fungi; the genetics of sexual reproduction in pathogenic fungi and those used in the biotechnology and food sectors; and the epigenetic control of gene transcription.
