Evolutionary properties of mycotoxin production by filamentous fungi: field trips in Zambia and experiments in Wageningen
Filamentous fungi can contaminate maize and nuts, staple foods in Zambia. Contamination is through the production of mycotoxins: highly toxic compounds produced by Aspergilli. In this thesis project, you will travel to Zambia to d ...

The predictability of antibiotic resistance evolution
Evolution is driven by both chance and necessity, which make its outcome hard to predict. Laboratory evolution experiments with micro-organisms provide a powerful means to study evolution under controlled conditions in replicate p ...

The evolution of niche construction
During evolution, new genotypes may affect the environment in various ways, including the depletion of resources and the excretion of metabolites and toxins. These new conditions may present niches to which later genotypes may ada ...

Role of bacterial interactions in the evolution of antibiotic resistance
Bacterial extracellular products affect not only the fitness of the producer itself, but may also affect the fitness of other cells in the population. We study these social effects using the antibiotic-degrading enzyme TEM-1 beta- ...

Microbial ecology of Zambian fermented products: evolution of microbial communities
Microbial ecology of Zambian fermented products: evolution of microbial communities Analogous to well-known fermented products such as yoghurt, wine, beer and sauerkraut, Zambia has many endogenous fermented products. The ferment ...

Biocontrol of strawberry greenhouse aphids and the effects of bacterial endosymbionts: Project options with molecular work, field work or parasitism experiments.
Aphids are problematic pests in many greenhouse crop systems. To control aphids in a biologically sustainable way, natural predators and parasitoids can be deployed. The use of biological aphid control however is not always succes ...

Experimental Evolution of a Sex Chromosome
Theory predicts that sex chromosomes begin with non-recombining blocks that accumulate sex-specific antagonistic alleles. In nature, fungi do not exist as males and female, but instead as hemaphrodites. To test the evolution of a  ...

Conflict and cooperation among fungal crops cultivated by termites
Termites in Africa and Asia cultivate fungi of the genus Termitomyces. The fungus is actively farmed by the termites in a monoculture garden well protected in the termite nest. Interactions between different fungal clones and betw ...

Genetics of non-self recognition in Basidiomycetes
Fungi, like all multicellular organisms, need to differentiate self from non-self. In vertebrates this is accomplished using the MHC loci, while mold fungi use highly polymorphic het loci. In our lab we are determining the process ...

Functional analysis of candidate genes for sex ratio in parasitoid wasps
Can alternative splicing of candidate genes explain differential sex ratios adjustment in the genetic model parasitoid Nasonia vitripennis? In this project, you will work on the functional analysis of candidate genes for sex ra ...
