Mycology

Mycology is the study of fungi, which also includes yeasts and mushrooms. Many fungi are helpful in both medical and business. Penicillin, streptomycin, and tetracycline, as well as other medicines like statins, were developed as a result of mycological research (cholesterol-lowering drugs).  In addition, mycology plays a significant role in the manufacturing of colours and inks, as well as in the dairy, wine, and baking sectors. 

Mycology is required to identify good and toxic fungus, treat crops, and stop further infections. The commercial value of several secondary metabolites produced by fungus is enormous. In order to reduce competition in the natural environment, fungi naturally create antibiotics that can either kill or stop the growth of bacteria. Fungi may be used to isolate important medicines like penicillin and cephalosporins.
