Crop contamination by Aflatoxin is one of the major food safety problems in Sub-Saharan Africa. Aflatoxin producing fungi vary widely by regions. Such variations also suggest their differences to colonise and produce aflatoxins in crops. Understanding the genetic make-up of such fungi is an important step for designing appropriate intervention strategies. I study aflatoxin producing fungi in Malawi by using molecular biology and microbiology tools.
