Borkovitch Katherine 250

Katherine A. Borkovich is Professor and Chair of the Department of Plant Pathology and Microbiology and Professor in the Institute for Integrative Genome Biology at the University of California Riverside. Dr. Borkovich is focused on functional genomics and the signaling pathways used by filamentous fungi to response to the environment with the goal of identifying genes that control growth development and pathogenesis. Her group pioneered study of heterotrimeric GTP-binding proteins (G proteins) in filamentous fungi using the model system Neurospora crassa. More recently her laboratory has contributed to genomic information for filamentous fungi including gene annotation in N. crassa and plant-pathogenic species in the genus Fusarium and genome-wide knockouts and functional genomics in N. crassa. Her group s landmark publications have led to the discovery that G proteins regulate virulence toxin production and secondary metabolism in numerous animal and plant fungal pathogens. ; Riverside.
