ERG PhD Student Seigi Karasaki Discovers a New Novel Fungal Species From Bats

ERG PhD student Seigi Karaski co-authored a recently published research paper on the discovery of novel fungal species and pathogens on bat carcasses. The research focuses on the scientific testing and analysis of the new fungus.

“One of the more alarming findings is that a number of infections related to Neocosmospora, previously associated with human and animal mycotoxicoses, are reported to be increasing, and here we present a new species from this genus, isolated from dead bats,” the paper states.
