RESEARCH INTEREST

Molecular- genetic analysis of recombinational repair system after DNA damage caused by oxidative insults, identifying new factors cooperating with Dss1 in cellular response to oxidative stress using Ustilago maydis as a model sistem.

Identification and characterization of cell factors involved in the recycling of oxidized biomolecules in the Ustilago maydis cell population after oxidative stress.
