Brief in­tro­duc­tion

Dominic Dennenmoser is employed as a research assistant, primarily on genomic and statistical affairs, at this section. He wrote a master thesis about the plant host range of two new and phylogenetically distinguishable species of the Fusarium solani species complex (FSSC) at the section of Ecological Plant Protection (FÖP). So far, he has been involved in the projects HealthyMinorCereals (HMC), INSUSFAR, and Liveseed. Currently, he is preparing a project proposal as well as is involved in single projects supporting breeders and conservation initiatives.
