R&D in mycology

Research topics

Molecular tools have been developed to complement the classical culture of fungi for their detection and identification. These include specific real-time PCRs to detect important fungal pathogens such as Candida spp., Aspergillus spp. and Pneumocystis jirovecii, as well as broad-range real-time PCRs followed by sequencing to detect and identify most fungal pathogens. MALDI-TOF MS has also been implemented to shorten time to identification of yeasts and molds cultured on agar.
