Annotating public fungal ITS sequences from the built environment according to the MIxS-Built Environment standard – a report from a May 23-24 , 2016 workshop ( Gothenburg , Sweden )

Recent molecular studies have identified substantial fungal diversity in indoor environments. Fungi and fungal particles have been linked to a range of potentially unwanted effects in the built environment, including asthma, decay of building materials, and food spoilage. The study of the built mycobiome is hampered by a number of constraints, one of which… CONTINUE READING
