Sex, light, and carotenes: the development of fungi


The workshop entitled "Sex, Light, and Carotenes: The Development of Fungi" by Dr. Luis Corrochano will be a brief intensive educational program for a relatively small interested group of people (maximum 40 people) that focuses especially on techniques and skills in fungal photobiology. In addition, Dr. Corrochano is eager to collaborate in his area of expertise with our research project entitled "Induction of conidial tolerance to UV-B radiation and heat in fungi grown under the influence of visible light", in which the object is to understand why mycelial grown under light conditions improve conidial stress tolerance of the entomopathogenic fungus Metarhizium robertsii, which was discovered in 2006 by Dr. Rangel. Dr. Corrochano is an expert in fungal photobiology trained in molecular biology with Nobel laureate Prof. Sydney Brenner. He did his PhD at the University of Seville (Spain) and received postdoctoral training in the Molecular Genetics Unit of the Medical Research Council (Cambridge, UK), under the guidance of Prof. Brenner, and at the Department of Biological Sciences, under the guidance of Prof. Charles Yanofsky, a US National Academy member. Prof. Corrochano investigates the molecular mechanisms of the regulation by light of gene transcription, and leads the Phycomyces genome project funded by the US Department of Energy. (AU)
