Plant and Microbial Biology Plant Seminar: "Life on the inside: the evolutionary consequences of intracellular parasitism in cryptic Fungi"

Seminar | February 21 | 12-1 p.m. | 101 Barker Hall


Alisha Quandt

Department of Plant and Microbial Biology


I'm interested in all aspects of fungal biology. My research is focused on addressing three fundamental questions in mycology: (1) How do fungi evolve the ability to switch hosts or adapt to utilize various substrates? (2) How do fungi interact with other microorganisms? and (3) Where are potential unexplored habitats of novel fungal diversity? Genomics, metagenomics, transcriptomics, phylogenetics, and molecular community ecology are tools that I combine with computational biology to address these larger interests in fungal evolutionary biology.
