Dr. Corine Buser-Schöbel
Professional and Research Interests
I am an evolutionary ecologist interested in host-pathogen interactions, as well as the pathways of spread and epidemiology of introduced pathogens. I am using molecular genetic and bioinformatic tools, field sampling and laboratory infection experiments to answer fundamental and applied questions in the field. So far, I have worked with multiple animal and plant systems, and in the past years my focus has been the ecology and epidemiology of plant pathogenic fungi and their mycoviruses. In the molecular diagnostics team, I am now investigating different plant pathogens using molecular tools like Sequencing and qPCR.
