Course provided by LabCE.

Mycology: Hyaline and Dematiaceous Fungi uses an interrogative, question-and-answer, approach to direct and instruct the participant in identifying hyaline and dematiaceous fungi. Numerous images enhance the descriptions of identifying characteristics by illustrating the appearance of fungal colonies on media and microscopic appearance. The course also identifies sources of infection and associated diseases. This course is appropriate for laboratory professionals and students in clinical laboratory science programs who want to increase their understanding of mycology including microscopic and colony appearance and isolate identification.
