About the Journal

Focus and Scope

The journal is intended to provide a platform for research communities from different disciplines to disseminate, exchange and communicate all aspects of basic and applied research involving two important division of fungi, ascomycetes and basidiomycetes. Areas of investigation include taxonomy, diversity, physiology, biology, ecology, biodegradation, biotechnology, medical mycology, environmental sustainability, and public health issues.

Topics of specific interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Ascomycetes and basidiomycetes related issues: diversity, biology, ecology, taxonomy, systematic, and physiology.
  • Toxicology in ascomycetes and basidiomycetes, including plant pathology, parasitic fungi, cell biology, genomic and molecular biology.
  • Applied technology in Ascomycetes and basidiomycetes, including biodegradation, bioremediation, enzyme application, biochemistry, biosensor, biofuel, bioenergy, biofermentation, aerobic and anaerobic processes.
  • Ascomycetes and basidiomycetes in environment including mycelial mutualistic interaction, soil fungi, lichens, mycorrizhas, conservation, and decomposition.
  • Other microbial aspects including metabolic engineering, biomolecular engineering and nanobiotechnology.
