My projects involve the identification of MAT-linked recombination hotspots, recapitulation of the ancestral tri-and tetra-polar MAT loci, characterization of the function of G proteins in the pheromone signaling pathway and identification of a constitutively active GPCR. More recently, I discovered a repeat-induced silencing phenomenon that occurs during mating. I am studying the underlying mechanism and am interested in further exploring the role of silencing pathway in genome defense of C. neoformans.
