Our research focuses on microbial interactions with a special emphasis on fungal mycoparasites. We investigate molecular details of gene regulation of the interaction partners and signal transduction and recognition processes involved in microbial communication. We further investigate fungal secondary metabolite production triggered by biotic and abiotic signals in efficient mycoparasitic biocontrol agents such as Trichoderma atroviride.
