This project will generate the primary scientific base for a model to study the detailed biological mechanisms behind genetic instabilities in fungi and related processes in other organisms. Testing of stress and cultivation conditions, extensive phenotyping, new phenotyping protocols and in-depth whole genome analyses will provide new information on causes of fungal strain instability.
