PROJECTS

 

(1) Molecular diagnostics of fungi

  • Development of new molecular methods (PCR, real time PCR, microarray technique) for the detection of dermatophyte species in collaboration with Biotech companies
  • Development of proficiency tests for external quality controls

(2) Epidemiological studies of selected dermatophyte species using molecular typing methods

  • MLMT (Multi Locus Microsatellite Typing) – A technique to analyze the population structure, identify routes of transmission and sources of infection (by using the genome variability) of strains of Microsporum canis and Trichophyton rubrum

(3) Analysis and distribution of mating type loci (HMG box, alpha domain) of sexual and clonal reproducing dermatophyte species

Funding

  • Reference center for Dermatophytes by Robert Koch Institut (RKI)
  • Development of kits for the molecular diagnostics of Dermatophytes by TBI/company and AIF
