Scientific summary

Our current work aims to (i) identify all the host genes that intervene in the response of C. elegans to fungal infection; (ii) characterise protein complexes involved in signalling networks; (iii) study the intracellular dynamics of protein complexes; (iv) relate these elements to the physiology of the whole organism.

The combined results promise insights into how C. elegans attempts to counter infection. This fundamental knowledge will serve as a paradigm for the epithelial immune defences that counter fungal infection.
