    About This Project

    Tiny fungal spores and yeast forms are found in the soil, air, and water. Infection takes hold when spores break dormancy and grow in or on us. Fungi kill more than 1.5 million people every year. The few existing antifungal drugs are becoming ineffective because of a dramatic increase in resistance. Deep sequencing of the spore transcriptome will help us understand the mechanisms regulating spore dormancy and identify new drug targets.
