Studies in Mycology

Utrecht - Netherlands

The CBS Fungal Biodiversity Centre - an institute of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW) and situated in Utrecht, The Netherlands - maintains a world-renowned collection of living filamentous fungi, yeasts and bacteria. The institute's research programs principally focus on the taxonomy and evolution of fungi as well as on functional aspects of fungal biology and ecology, increasingly making use of molecular and genomics approaches. The CBS employs circa 70 personnel, among whom circa 17 scientists.

The CBS taxonomy series "Studies in Mycology" is an international journal which publishes systematic monographs of filamentous fungi and yeasts, and at occasions the proceedings of special meetings related to all fields of mycology, biotechnology, ecology, molecular biology, pathology and systematics. The first issue was published in 1972. More information may be found at the web site.
