FungiG holds the expertise in DNA Barcoding (molecular identification) of Trichoderma and other fungi.
We develop and maintain the website of the International Commission on Trichoderma Taxonomy (ICTT)
FungiG is a research group established by Irina S. Druzhinina and Feng Cai in China. The group inherits traditions on Irina's MiBi Microbiology and Applied Genomics Group that she run in the TU Wien, Vienna, Austria. We focus on ecological genomics, diversity, and evolution of hypocrealean fungi, in particular Trichoderma. In China, we re-establish the research on DNA Barcoding, taxonomy, and identification of fungi, and continue working on surface-active proteins such as hydrophobins and cerato-platanins.
