Objective

Analyze the complex modes of action of atoxigenic Aspergillus flavus (Biocontrol agent, BCA) to control toxigenic ones. Apply genomics and transcriptomics technologies to gain deeper and more accurate insights on the interactions of atoxigenic (biocontrol agent, BCA) and toxigenic A. flavus to inhibit aflatoxin biosynthesis and reproduction.
