BIOL 7753 - Field Biology of Fungi

The southern Appalachians provide an ideal setting to explore the biology of fungi. This class provides an introduction with emphasis on fieldID and current experimental methods used to study fungal genetics, ecology, and evolution. Lab exercises will use filamentous fungi to demonstrate methods for identification, culture techniques, breeding systems, genetic analysis, and interaction biology. Field trips will survey the taxonomic diversity.
