The department is running a one day workshop on Filamentous fungi on Thursday 31 August.
Filamentous fungi, usually known as moulds, are a particular and very interesting group of microorganisms with many applications in our daily lives (e.g. food and antibiotics). They can also be responsible for diseases in plants, animals and humans. Since we can find them virtually everywhere, and we come across them on regular basis, it is of our best interest to know more about them.
This short course will provide you general knowledge on the biology of filamentous fungi and have a hands-on practical introduction to the basic methodologies for daily laboratory manipulation of fungal strains. It is aimed at everybody with an interest in mycology and biodiversity in general.
