My research focuses on investigating regulatory mechanisms of eukaryotic gene expression.  Currently, my laboratory is focusing on genes that are involved in fungal cell wall metabolism.  The fungal cell wall, which is composed of polysaccharides and glycoproteins, is essential for growth and metabolism of the fungus and is an excellent target for antifungal drugs.  We have identified several genes that play specific roles in cell wall metabolism in the filamentous fungus Aspergillus nidulans including genes that have homologues that have been foun
