Welcome to my personal page.
My name is Riccardo Baroncelli and I’m a postdoctoral researcher in the fungal bioinformatics, genomics and molecular biology research group led by Michael Thon and Serenella Sukno (http://fgblab.org/). The groups is part of the Genetics group at CIALE (Instituto Hispano-Luso de Investigaciones Agrarias), University of Salamanca (Spain).
We study various aspects of plant pathology, genetics and plant-fungus interactions, using Colletotrichum as a model system. More information about our research lines can be found here: http://fgblab.org/research/
The areas more attractive to me are those related to comparative ‘omics applied to evolutionary relationship and host\pathogen interaction.
Current Official Research Projects.
