Fungal Biology

Fungal Biology

Fungi range in scale from microscopic single cells to vast underground mycelial colonies, covering hundreds of acres. Because they are closely related to animals, and because their biology and genetics are easily manipulated in the lab, fungi are excellent model organisms to address key questions in biology.
