Personal profile


Fungi produce secondary metabolites (SMs), which have been a key target for drug discovery over the last half-century. SM production is encoded by biosynthetic gene clusters (BGCs), with the typical fungal genome containing far more BGCs than what is actively produced by the fungi. My project involves developing bioinformatic pipelines for the mining and analysis of BGCs within the genomes of novel Australian fungi, to try and identify new and interesting compounds.
