Library Club Talk – Sexual reproduction in fungi for strain improvement
Many products are produced by fungi, from antibiotics to citric acid and enzymes used in washing detergents.
Discovering the sexual cycle in fungi used for the production of these products allows to select for strains with better attributes, just like farmers have done for years with agriculture and animal husbandry. This can have benefits for healthcare, economics and future food security.
Join PhD student and University of Nottingham researcher Paul Brett to learn about all things fungi in this fascinating February Library Club Talk!
Clifton Library has an accessible level entrance with automatic doors and all ground level
