I and my team have been working on certain plant pathogenic fungi (the most recently interested on brown rot pathogens). We use population genetics, phylogenetics, and genomics based approaches. Mainly we are trying to explore changes in population genetics/genomics structures; mitochondrial genomics changes; genetics basis of fungicide resistance, pathogenicity, speciation, host-pathogen coevolution and host specifity. I and my students are experienced with fungal sampling from field, fungal culturing, molecular diagnosis, PCR based applications, in vitro fungicide assays, mitochondrial genomics, genomics, analyzing of NGS data for some downstream analyses etc. We would like to be part of projects overlapping our current interests as well as some of further interests such as mycotoxins.
