Ms Jostina Rakoma
I am currently doing my Master's degree under the supervision of Markus Wilken. The main goal of this project is to show and explain the mating genes for members of the Ceratocystidaceae by completing genome sequencing of species from Meredithiella, Toshionella, Wolfgangiela and Phialophoropsis genera and to elucidate the structure of their mating-type genes. This study will provide genome sequences that will aid in genome-based analyses and also provide useful insights and understanding into the mating strategies utilized.
