Marijana received her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine Degree from University of Zagreb. Her love for intellectual challenges and research continued in research on bacterial and fungal pathogens. Toxicity of mycotoxins has been the focus of her PhD Research at the Faculty of Science. Investing her time in literature reading and reviews along with continuous education and creative experimental endeavours has broadened her scientific knowledge. In addition to microbiology, mycology, and toxicology, she has implemented analytical chemistry in her work to meet the challenges of a changing environment.
Yeast genome sequencing is a fast-moving field of yeast research and is yielding significant results. This Thematic Issue from FEMS Yeast Research highlights the current advances being made in genome analysis and represents the progress that has been achieved over the last 25 years. Papers in this issue cover topics including fungal hybridization, RNA-seq data analysis, mass spectrometry, beer brewing, and the natural history of the Saccharomyces genus.
