Plant and Microbial Biology Plant Seminar: "Chemical Intelligence of Fungi"
Seminar | March 14 | 12-1 p.m. | 101 Barker Hall
Nancy Keller, University of Wisconsin - Madison
My research focus lies in genetically dissecting those aspects of Aspergillus spp. that render them potent pathogens and superb natural product machines. We are interested in elucidating the mechanism of fungal sporulation and host/pathogen interactions; processes intimately linked to secondary metabolite (e.g. mycotoxin) production.
