Fungi-nematode interactions

My group studies the molecular interactions between carnivorous fungi and nematodes. We established two predatory fungal models, the nematode-trapping fungi (NTF) Arthrobotrys oligospora and the oyster mushroom Pleurotus ostreatus, to study their interactions with C. elegans at cellular and molecular levels. We aim to harness the nematocidal ability of these fungi and use them as models to study the mechanisms of predator-prey co-evolution.
