Prof. Alex Andrianopoulos

Research interests

Microbial and developmental genetics

  • Understanding the molecular genetic mechanisms that regulate cellular morphogenesis and virulence in the human pathogen Talaromyces marneffei.
  • Understanding the molecular genetic mechanisms that regulate development in the eukaryotic model organism Aspergillus nidulans

Research projects

  • Genomic approaches to identifying and characterising genes important for infection
  • Dissecting the molecular and cellular aspects of host-pathogen interactions
  • Molecular genetic characterisation of transcriptional factors, and their circuits, controlling development
  • Genetic and genomic approaches to improve bioethanol production.
