Nice things from the past

Sári is the co-author of a new manuscript [(title: Radioactive environment adapted bacterial communities constituting the biofilms of hydrothermal spring caves (Budapest, Hungary)] that has recently been accepted for publication in the Journal of Environmental Radioactivity. She contributed to this work in her former lab.

Also, Erik’s article [title: New insights on Hygrophorus penarioides and H. penarius (Agaricales, Hygrophoraceae) from Hungary] on a work related also to his former lab has been published.

Generous ISHAM Grants to our lab

We are excessively grateful to the the International Society for Human & Animal Mycology for awarding many of our labmembers with the  ISHAM2018 Attendance Grant. This makes it possible for many of us to attend the 20th Congress of the International Society for Human and Animal Mycology (Amsterdam) and present our research there.Image result for 20th Congress of the International Society for Human and Animal Mycology
