Fungal & Microbial Genomics

The group focuses on the analysis of fungal and microbial genomes. With former efforts on the model systems yeast and Neurospora we now work on plant pathogenic fungi and advanced model systems like Fusarium spec., Ustilaginaceae and others. We also provide comprehensive analysis of further public genome data for comparative analysis.

The basis to explore the species specific properties are correct structural annotations. Thus we improve the gene sets of our core projects and related genome data by applying comparative gene calling procedures. The resulting structurally annotated genomes are used for integration of further omics datasets and comparative studies.
