This group is studying and screening the natural products portfolios of higher fungi. They are currently genome sequencing several Ascomycota and Basidiomycota with the goal of annotating and heterologous refactoring of their natural products biosynthetic gene clusters. They are particularly interested in pathways that make new antimicrobials and in further expanding our predictive framework for sesquiterpenoid natural products biosynthesis in fungi.
A bibliography of this group’s publications is attached.
