The First Fungal Genome Workshop will highlight current research
in biology, biotechnology and genome sciences as they are applied
to filamentous fungi. The goal is to demonstrate the urgent need
of large-scale DNA sequencing in the complex integration process
of fundamental research with biotechnology and industry. The
workshop will bring together investigators from academia and
industry and the discussions will focus on genome technology
applied to filamentous fungi.
