vilgalys rytas

 

Dr. Vilgalys' research uses the techniques of molecular biology as well as traditional approaches (culturing, mating studies, etc.) to answer questions about the genetics and natural history of fungi. Research areas include: 1) the Fungal Tree of Life Project and the origins of fungal biodiversity- our principle research is focused on undertstanding phylogeny of fungi in fungi, including  mushrooms (basidiomycetes), as well as the earliest fungal lineages; 2) molecular epidemiology and population genetics of fungi. Genetic studies are aimed at elucidating mating systems and life history in wild mushroom species as well as symbiotic fungi including human pathogens; and 3) molecular ecology of fungal communities.  His lab is currently using next-gen sequencing methods to study how microbial communities respond to environmental change.
