There has been a lack of knowledge on the role of biofilm in Basidiomycese and I would like to uncover the importance of its morphology. My current thesis work involves the intercellular communication that triggers biofilm formation in Cryptococcus neoformans. I wants to identify the unknown signal as well as to characterize the signal pathways involved.
