Research Project: Molecular Biology and Bioinformatics for Fungal Pathogens

Location: Emerging Pests and Pathogens Research

Project Number: 8062-22410-005-04-S
Project Type: Non-Assistance Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Sep 1, 2010
End Date: Aug 31, 2015

Objective:
Develop molecular tools for use in evaluating secondary metabolite potential of fungal pathogens of insects using Metarhizium as a model system.

Approach:
Construct knockout mutants for analysis of secondary metabolite production using Agrobacterium-mediated transformation of insect pathogenic fungi, predominantly using Metarhizium. Perform bioinformatic analysis of transcriptome libraries and genome data.
