Type of Research Project
- Basic science
What is the background of the project?
1. Dissecting the mechanisms underlying morphological alterations and biofilm formation in Candida albicans. Specifically dissecting the functional role of Candida albicans CDC4, a structural homologue of Saccharomyces cerevisiae in the control of cell cycle via unbiquitination, whose absence leads to filamentous morphology. 2. Functional genomic approach to dissect the key elements in controlling morphogenesis. 3. Identification of genes involved in morphogenesis by proteomics approach, dominant negative genes selection, gene switch based on zinc finger libraries.
