Pierre Joubert

3rd Year Microbiology PhD Student

Grace Kase Fellow

My undergraduate research focused on bacterial endophytes of poplar trees. Since the start of my PhD I have developed new interests in evolution and genomics which led me to the Krasileva lab. My project focuses on studying extrachromosomal circular DNAs (eccDNAs) and their role in the evolution of fungal plant pathogens.
