Fungal Genomics for Energy and Environment

Speaker
  • Head, Fungal Genomics Program, US Department of Energy Joint Genome Institute
    Biography
      Dr. Grigoriev joined the DOE Joint Genome Institute in 2003 to participate in human genome annotation and lead annotation of over 200 diverse eukaryotic genomes from protists to plants (http://genome.jgi.doe.gov). In 2009 at JGI he started the Fungal Genomics program (http://www.jgi.doe.gov/fungi) to scale up sequencing and analysis of diverse fungi for related to DOE science and applications, which led to large projects like 1000 Fungal Genomes. Dr. Grigoriev organized over 30 genomics workshops and engaged over 2000 researches around the world in genome projects, which resulted in over 50 high-profile publications.

    Abstract

    There are over 1.5 Million fungal species and they play critical role in shaping Earth ecosystems. Better understanding of pathogens and symbionts is critical for a sustainable growth of plants. Fungi are the most efficient degraders of plant biomass to convert it into bioenergy. Many other new metabolic processes and enzymes are encoded in fungal genomes. Fungal genomics may offer answers to critical challenges of future such as food, medicine, energy and the environment. This talk will describe approaches used in large scale genomics- to explore phylogenetic and ecological diversity of fungi. It will also illustrated how genomic data can improve our understanding of plant-fungal interactions and enable practical applications for energy and the environment.
