Report The 12th European Conference on Fungal Genetics (ECFG12) in Seville from March 23 to 27 2014 and the European Neurospora Meeting on 23th of March were an excellent opportunities to get an expert feedback on my Ph.D. project. I held my first talk on an international conference during the second session of the European Neurospora Meeting. This was a rather challenging experience. But it went well and I discussed my data with very experienced researchers in the field of fungal development. During the poster session of the ECFG12 I presented my data. In lively discussions I was able to achieve new ideas. Further the list of plenary speakers was very interesting to me. Listening to talks turned out extremely valuable for developing new ideas that leaded to a more comprehensive view on fungal genetics.
