研究方向與未來發展

My research centers on the understanding molecular and genetic mechanisms
involved in fungal pathogenicity or virulence. Current projects are aimed at the
investigation of the signaling pathways leading to ROS detoxification, cellular
resistance to osmotic stress and multidrug, fungicide sensitivity, spore
formation, iron acquisition and pathogenicity of the tangerine pathotype of
Alternaria alternata
. Research is also concentrated on the investigation of
the biosynthetic gene clusters and pathogenicity roles of cercosporin and
elsinochrome toxins produced by Cercospora nicotianae and Esinoë
fawcettii
, respectively.
