Fungal Biology and Biotechnology is now considering Technical notes. This article type should present a new experimental or computational method, test or procedure, showing a novel or improved approach, a well tested method, and ideally proven value. Check out here for more details about submission guidelines.
We are pleased to announce that all articles published in Fungal Biology and Biotechnology are included in PubMed and PubMed Central.
Tomorrow's world: leading scientists of the future
Fungal Biology and Biotechnology Editors attend the most prestigious international conferences of the fungal research community: the European Conference on Fungal Genetics and the Asilomar Fungal Genetics Conference. At these conferences we invite young scientists who presented excellent posters to take part in a Q&A and tell us more about their research. Read the latest blog post by Jillian Romsdahl, Freek Appels and Sara Cea-Sánchez to find out more. You can also read past blogs here.
What happens when Filamentous Fungi colonize spacecrafts?
Being an indoor-closed habitat with controlled moisture and temperature makes the International Space Station (ISS) good for humans, but also good for microorganisms. So one day astronauts on the ISS saw something different on the walls of the room where they exercised their muscles: mold!
Indeed, screening for microbial contamination aboard the ISS revealed both Penicillium sp. and Aspergillus sp. But what happens when filamentous fungi colonize spacecrafts? Find out here as Marta Cortesao, a PhD student in Space Microbiology at the German Aerospace Center (DLR) discloses the world of microbes in space on her blog Space Microbes.
