Today I am offsite at a fungi conference, and I will write more about fungi in our lab soon. Suffice it to say, today will be a revelling in the wonders that are fungi. There will be talk of Wood Rot fungi and how they play into the nutrient cycles of an ecosystem! A review of Chytrid and how it plays into the decline of amphibians. Chestnut blight. DNA mutations…it will be a day chock full of information all fungal in nature. Exciting for sure because it only adds more depth to the things we have planned.

Speaking of plants, there is also a post coming about our “mushroom farm” and how it fits in with our fungi endeavors.

But for now, just a couple of photos for  your day to give a glimpse of what’s happening…or should I say, “growing” in the  Micro World iLab!  Enjoy!
