Aspergillus species are responsible for a wide variety of diseases in humans, ranging from direct invasion to hypersensitivity reactions. The
Candidiasis Properties Pathogenesis and Immunity Candida spp. are typically present as part of the normal flora on the oral cavity,
Sometimes referred to as saprotrophs saprophytes are organisms that receive nutrition from decaying and dead organic matter, particularly plant matter.
The Parasexual Cycle is defined as a cycle in which plasmogamy, karyogamy and meiosis (haploidisation) take place but not at a specified time or at specified points in the life-cycle of an organism.
Basidiomycetes are harmful as well as useful. Their attack foods and ornamental plants, cause many different diseases including seedling diseases, wood rots, root and stem rots, seed diseases (smuts), and rusts, on the other hand, it used as humans foods.
Yeast or Saccharomyces cerevisiae is a eukaryotic, unicellular microorganism and a member of the fungus kingdom. These are the unicellular microorganism which is evolved from multicellular ancestors.
The S. octosporous contain a haploid somatic cell. During the favorable condition, cells undergo through asexual cycle known as fission and haplobiontic sexual cycle.
Rhizopus stolonifer is responsible for ripe fruits, such as strawberries, melon, and peach, mainly those contain wounds and higher sugar content. During germination, it produces esterases, including cutinase which enable the penetration of fungus into the plant cell wall.
The fungi are classified based on the characteristics of the sexual spores and fruiting bodies present during the sexual stages of their life cycles. Therefore, based on characteristics of their sexual stages and morphology of their asexual spores and thalli they are classified into different groups.
There are different modes of reproduction in fungi such as sexual, asexual, and vegetative modes of reproduction. There are involve
