Greetings to all in the mycology newsgroup..I was out for a while on vacation
and bad case of tonsilitis (darn bacteria (-: ) but now I am back....
Mycology is very complex, we use a wide variety of techniques to do our work,
from molecular tools to clasical taxonomic techniques. We use microscopes of
all types. Media of all type..
In our laboratory web site I have several procedures that are used in order to
identify the medical important fungi, buth the procedures could also be applied
to other areas of mycology. the procedures are available in PDF format. I also
keep a small list of links to other places where you will be able to find more
our url is
hope this information helps!
