One Day Course on Filamentous Fungi - 1st Edition (31st August 2017)
Fungi are a very abundant and diverse group of organisms. From the estimated 1.5 ~ 6 million species, we have only managed to identify around 10%, so there is still much undiscovered and unknown to us.
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 will have a hands-on practical introduction to the basic methodologies for daily laboratorial manipulation of fungal strains. It is aimed at everybody with an interest in mycology and biodiversity in general. Basic laboratorial skills are preferred but not essential, and no previous experience in mycology is required.
Registration will include course documentation, coffee-breaks and lunch.
