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