Fungi Exploitation - Electron Microscopes

Fungi Exploitation
Science is going back to basics ...We look at how more than 28,000 strains of fungus held in the UK’s national collection are becoming the focus of research seeking new antibacterialdrugs. The collection has great roots – it still holds an original sample of Sir Alexander Fleming’s penicillin. Quentin Cooper is joined by Dr Joan Kelley, Executive Director Bioservices, CABI and Professor Peter Bramley, Head of the School of Biological Sciences Royal Holloway, University of London.
