We are interested to understand the molecular mechanism of calcium signaling pathway using the model filamentous fungus Neurospora crassa. Calcium ion is a universal second messenger molecule that impacts almost all cell processes in eukaryotes. We hope to extend our research to understand the role of calcium signaling in memory, learning, and other related areas in future.
