Library Talk: Sexual reproduction in fungi for strain improvement

06 Feb 10.30am – 12pm Clifton Library
Join University of Nottingham researcher Paul Brett for a fascinating talk on all things fungi!

 

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 University of Nottingham researcher Paul Brett for a fascinating talk on all things fungi!
