How does a fungus become a killer? It’s a difficult question to answer, but Mark McMullan from the Earlham Institute is interested in how plant diseases evolve – and he explores this through comparing differences in their genes.
What makes a killer fungus unique? How do we use this information to understand their evolution? Are some genes more important than others?
Come along to Mark’s talk, and he’ll tell you all about it through the story of Europe’s devastating ash dieback disease.
