Understanding the role of small molecules in the infection of insects by fungi

Description
In this project, you will study the production of nucleosides and other small molecules by fungi of the order Hypocreales using metabolomics methods (samples obtained from Warwick). Then you will test the molecular effects of these nucleosides on the immune responses of a Drosophila immune cell line.

Here today, corn tomorrow: developing African crop bio-protectants for the future.

Description
This project will be of particular interest to researchers wanting to address immediate welfare and economic issues in developing countries, but will also generate important data and methodologies for further research into plant biology and diverse applications of compounds derived from natural sources (e.g. anti-microbials, therapeutics, insect repellents, detergents).
