Micologia i Microbiologia Ambiental – MICOLOGIA

SALUT I MEDI AMBIENT
OBJECTIUS

El grup Micologia i Microbiologia Ambiental és un grup multidisciplinari que té com a objectiu conèixer la biodiversitat de fongs i bacteris, caracteritzar els mecanismes que  intervenen en la seva patogenicitat i el disseny de noves estratègies terapèutiques.
