Fungal bioinformatics

Fungal spores

Description

Identifying genes associated with mycorrhizae

Next generation genome sequencing provide multiple opportunities to compare genomes of fungi which are either pathogens or mycorrhizae, in an attempt to gain an understanding of the genes involved in beneficial plant-fungus interactions.

We have multiple partial genome sequences available for comparitive genomics and bioinformatics of orchid-mycorrhizal fungi and related plant pathogens species.
