Fusarium oxysporum is a fungus that causes diseases in a range of important crops. Genome dynamics play an important role in the pathogenicity of this fungus and its transfer between strains. In his research, Ido Vlaardingerbroek sets out to answer two questions about the processes underlying chromosome transfer and loss in Fusarium: which chromosomes can be transferred or lost and what distinguishes them from those that are not amenable to transfer and loss? To do this, he develops novel experimental procedures, in particular the use of flow cytometry to screen for rare events.
