University of Nottingham
Fungal Biology and Genetics
The research group focuses on fungi, including yeasts, filamentous fungi and lichens. The group is interested in 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; ecological interests include lichen ecophysiology and the role of lichens in ecosystems. Other major research areas are: 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.
