19: Duncan Wilson, Tracking fungus | i3S Library Talks Ep 19

Duncan Wilson is a fungi detective and, as such, he looks for clues to solve mysteries. In his case, he goes through mineral traces to figure out how pathogenic fungi contend with their host for food. It’s this ongoing competition which results in illness. Wilson’s favorite “clue” is zinc and how fungi metabolize it in the course of their interaction with host cells.
