Understanding Wood Decay Mechanisms and Tropical Fungal Ecology

Decay fungi are fundamental in ecosystem functioning, yet we have a limited understanding about the specific mechanisms of the different types of wood decay fungi. These researchers are interested in exploring the genomes of white, brown, and soft rot decay fungi to understand fundmental questions of mechanisms and ecology. In addition, the tropics hold abundant and undisovered fungal diversity. The researchers plan to use metagenomic approaches to understand these fungal assemblages.
