Progress with Mangrove Fungus Biotechnology Project

We recently posted about investigating whether the mangrove fungus we find on infected leaves may have potential uses in biotechnology (see here). The images above show how some Pestalotiopsis cultures we have isolated from infected mangrove leaves are able to change the color of a specific dye known as Congo red. When an organism causes a color change of […]

Use of Mangrove Fungi in Biotechnology

Many of our posts about mangrove fungi we’ve found on mangrove leaves have been centered on identifying the species causing the lesions we find on leaves (see here and here). We are also interested in understanding whether this fungus has potential for biotechnology applications.

Many fungi and bacteria are being studied for their ability to breakdown complex […]
