Summer School 1

Summer School 1 on ‘’Rapid and official methods for mycotoxin detection and toxigenic fungi identification (morphological and molecular approaches) in wheat’’ was held at CNR-ISPA (Italy) between 17 and 21 October 2022. Five young researchers selected from various universities, R&D research centers and ministries development agencies institutions in Turkey, as well as participants from TUBITAK and University of Valencia (UV), attended this summer school.

This summer school focused on transferring knowledge to young researchers on morphological and molecular analysis for mycotoxigenic fungi. Participants gained knowledge about the development potential of mold samples that were created in a lab setting and grew in a particular culture medium and also the molecular training on fungal identification through DNA extraction to real time PCR, LAMP assay.
