My master's project is focused on endopolygalacturonase (endoPG) enzymes in the order Agaricales with particular emphasis on the endoPG genes and enzymes of Armillaria. My work has elucidated the variation of these genes within the genus Armillaria using four publically available genomes. My current work extends to characterising these genes in other genomes that are available on MycoCosm.
