We study the molecular mechanisms of fungal pathogenicity and fundamental problems in infection biology, using a combination of molecular, as well as genome-wide and systems biology approaches.

First, we use reverse genetics approaches to identify virulence and antifungal drug resistance genes in the most prevalent human fungal pathogens such as Candida glabrata and C. albicans. For instance, we have generated a genome-scale gene deletion collection of
