In 2020 I completed my BSc in Genetics at the University of Pretoria. I am now working towards an Honours degree under the supervision of Dr Markus Wilken. My work will focus on the fungal genus Sclerotinia. Within this genus, the mating-type genes of several species are unknown. Therefore, the aim of my project is to use currently available genomic data to identify and annotate the MAT locus genes of various Sclerotinia species.
