Report The financial support by the Research School made possible my participation on the 11th International Mycological Congress in Puerto Rico in July 2018 and the visit at Heitman’s lab in Duke University. This is the most important conference in the field of mycology and therefore an ideal platform to present my current research data to renowned scientists. During my poster presentation, I discussed several aspects of my project and latest results. During my visit at Heitman’s lab I have expanded my knowledge in fungal genomics and bioinformatics, got familiar with new experimental techniques and provided me with a strong scientific network and resources crucial for my future career.
