Denish Piya is a postdoctoral scholar in the Arkin Laboratory at UC Berkeley. He completed his PhD from Texas A&M University focusing on phage research. He is applying CRISPR and Dubseq technologies to study how genes affect fitness in context of phage infection.

Alexander Yemelin

Alexander Yemelin

Alex is a molecular fungal pathologist with expertise in biochemical, molecular and genome analysis of fungi. After obtaining a diploma in biology at TU Kaiserslautern (Germany), Alex completed his PhD degree at the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU) / IBWF in Kaiserslautern at Eckhard Thines Lab, studying infection-related development of Zymoseptoria tritici. His focus of research lies in identification and functional characterization of pathogenicity associated factors and genetic determinants of economically important plant fungal pathogens using genomics, transcriptomics, bioinformatics and high throughput mutagenesis approaches. His research retains a particular emphasis on the regulation and mechanisms of dimorphic switch in Z. tritici. As part of his postdoctoral research stay at UC Berkeley (Adam Arkin Lab), he is currently working on a BASF-funded project and is responsible for the establishment of a screening system based on a functional genomics approach using genome-wide fitness profiling of barcoded mutant library of Rhodosporidum toruloides to elucidate MoA of novel antifungal compounds.
