Research Interests

My lab focuses on studying genes involved in the virulence of the pathogenic yeast, <i>Cryptococcus neoformans. </i>This<i> </i>is an opportunistic organism usually infecting immunocompromised individuals. We are using RNA intereference (RNAi) and CRISPR to identify and study genes involved in its pathogenicity.<br><br>I am also involved with the Genomics Education Partnership (GEP), a consortium of educators using genomics CUREs to determine and elucidate gene structure and regulatory networks. <br><br>
