Aims and scope
Fungal Biology and Biotechnology is a peer-reviewed journal that publishes original scientific research and reviews covering all areas of fundamental and applied research which involve unicellular and multicellular fungi.
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 recently attended the 29th Fungal Genetics Conference in California. Whilst there, we invited three young scientists who presented excellent posters to take part in a Q&A and tell us more about their research. Read the blog posts by Dominik Terfehr, Julie Gervais, and Sietske Grijseels to find out more.
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.
