About The Lab.
MORPHOLOGICAL AND MOLECULAR IDENTIFICATION OF FUNGI
Due to the high diversity of fungi, their correct identification is necessary in order to understand their intricate interactions with other organisms. Our team has developed the skills and have the necessary experience to meet the challenges of the proper identification of microorganisms.
IN VIVO INTERACTIONS
In an effort to better understand the role that microorganisms play in plant physiology, interaction tests in in vivo models are an appropriate vehicle to unveil function of new microbes symbiotic with plants
FUNCTIONAL ANALYSIS OF GENES
To properly understand how the interactions between microorganisms and their hosts occur, it is important to discover the activity of the genes involved in both recognition and interaction in the system
