The mission of Frontiers in Fungal Biology is to bring the different fields of mycology together, with the ultimate goal of publishing research that makes a difference to people’s lives. Fungal biology spans agricultural, medical and applied industrial fields, yet it is a poorly represented biological field in colleges and universities. This journal aims to create a single platform for the different fields of fungal biology where researchers can learn from one another, so that human, animal and plant life can be improved.
We aim to publish significant research findings on all aspects of fungal biology to enhance our ability to decipher the nature of the complex interactions of fungi. This includes fungal secondary metabolites and mycotoxins, host-fungal interactions in humans, animals and plants, fungi in agriculture, fungal biodiversity and taxonomic and phylogenetic studies, fungal genomics, and fungal biotechnology.
The specialty section 'Fungi and Their Interactions' in Frontiers in Microbiology will close upon the launch of Frontiers in Fungal Biology.
