The “Fungal Genetics and Genomics” Unit, is interested to understand the genetics and epigenetics of basic fungal nutrition related to the ecological function and the production of fungal toxins and antibiotics. Epigenetic engineering of natural fungal isolates is used to find new antibiotics which may have been missed by conventional genetic screening approaches.
