Fungi and mushrooms are important components of natural ecosystems where they are involved in maintaining ecosystem functioning, promoting plant growth and alleviating environmental stress in plants. They have also been applied to the bioremediation of environmental pollutants. Our aim as a research center is to foster the development of talented scientists through the provision of a distinctive education experience and exposure to high-level research that will both revitalize the agricultural industry and stimulate new business opportunities. FMRC consists of Division of Genetic Resource Diversity, Division of Bioresource Preservation and Evaluation, Division of Mushroom Cultivation, Division of Functional Fungal Physiology and Pharmacology and Division of Applied Fungal Chemistry.
