Chrysoporthe species are well known pathogens of trees that belong to the Myrtales worldwide. My research is focused on comparative and phylogenetic analysis of mating-type, pheromone and pheromone receptor genes of these species. My aim is to understand the role that mating systems have in the evolution of the genus Chrysoporthe. My Supervisors are Dr. Albe van der Merwe, Prof. Emma Steenkamp and, Prof. Brenda Wingfield.
