Research overview:
This project is focused on the promotion of following subjects; the collection and preservation of pathogenic fungi and Actinomycetes from clinical as well as natural resources in various regions of the world: the development of a simple and precise identification methods of medically important pathogens by molecular genetic methods: the consolidation of data banks for pathogens and opening them for mycological and medical researchers of the world. In addition, the preserved cultures would be also examined to find any useful substances medically, industrially and environmentally.
