MYCOLOGY NOTES – A QUALITY STUDY NOTES OF MYCOLOGY

Mycology is the branch of microbiology that deals with the study of Fungi and Fungal infections are the most abundant and ubiquitous microorganism as that of bacteria that serve as both flora and pathogen to humans. In this section, you will get the study notes of all the topics with detailed and illustrative explanations which are quite easy to understand. Here you will get the study notes on various topics from the basics like the introduction to mycology, characteristics of fungi, its classification, how they are cultured in the laboratory and how the laboratory diagnosis of various fungal infections is accomplished to the study of individual fungi with detailed and illustrative explanation and if you got stuck anywhere or have any queries about any topic contact us here and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible.
