The 22nd International Fusarium Laboratory Workshop & MycoTWIN Summer School VII was jointly organized by the National Research Council of Italy - Institute of Sciences of Food Production (CNR-ISPA) and the International Society of Mycotoxicology in Bari (Italy) on 18-23 June 2023. The workshop has been taught by international Fusarium experts. The participants were introduced to standard morphological, genetic, and molecular biological techniques used to identify and characterize strains of Fusarium. Participants have learnt how to use morphological characters to identify the most common Fusarium species, make tests for vegetative compatibility groups and cross-fertility, extract, PCR amplify, and analyze DNA sequences. Most of the time was spent working with standard strains in the laboratory. In the activity, a total of 43 participants were involved including five young researchers selected from various institutions in Turkey, as well as participants from TUBITAK and University of Valencia.
