Fungal Biotechnology

Course Structure

Fungi are eukaryotic microorganisms that include both unicellular and multicellular species. They have a worldwide distribution and a wide range of applications in diverse sectors, from environmental, food and medicine to biotechnological innovations.  Some of these products are produced commercially while others are potentially valuable in biotechnology. Recombinant DNA technology, which includes yeasts and other fungi as hosts, has markedly increased markets for microbial enzymes. Molecular manipulations have been added to mutational techniques as a means of increasing titers and yields of microbial processes and in the discovery of new drugs. Moreover, the best is yet to come as genomes of additional species are sequenced at some level and gene and protein arrays become available.

Laboratory Work

  • Isolation fungi from different sources such as soil, water and plant.

  • Differentiation between fungal and bacteria in examination and development.

  • Study the Pathogenic and non-pathogenic fungi and their roles.

  • Media types and their uses.

  • Identification and Classification of Bacteria.

  • Identify the roles of Microbes in Sustainable Agriculture and Environmental Health.

  • Differentiate between industrial microbiology and microbial biotechnology.

  • Secondary metabolites

  • Microbial biotechnology

  • DNA isolation from fungi

  • Blast (Basic Local Alignment Search Tool)  sequencing
