What we do


We study evolution and ecology of symbiotic associations formed by fungi with bacteria. Our research topics include:
(i) the role of endosymbiotic bacteria in ecological community assembly and evolutionary diversification of early divergent Mucoromycota fungi,
(ii) the impact of endosymbiotic bacteria on phenotypic diversity of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (Glomeromycotina),
(iii) the mechanisms of innate immunity in Mucoromycotina molds.
