Research in the Reinke lab focuses on exploring the evolution of host-pathogen interactions, primarily studying microsporidia, which are fungal related intracellular pathogens with the smallest known eukaryotic genomes. We investigate these fascinating pathogens using the tractable animal host C. elegans, using an integrative approach of genetic, bioinformatic and biochemical techniques.
