Pathogenicity and biodiversity of representatives of the Mucorales

In addition A. fumigatus, fungi of the order Mucorales are also triggers of life-threatening infections. The Jena Microbial Resource Collection (JMRC, head Kerstin Voigt) group is particularly investigating the species Lichtheimia corymbifera, whose genome the group sequenced a few years ago. More information on the research projects can be found on the JMRC website.
