My research focus on desert truffles including Terfezia boudieri that forms mycorrhizal association with its host plant Helianthemum sessiliflorum. We study the fungus at several levels i.e. physiology, ecology and molecular biology. We participate in a project to sequence genomes of fungi including our desert truffles, in the frame of The European Community Sequencing Program.
