IBG student interviewed in Swedish Radio

2015-09-08

Markus Hiltunen, an IBG student, has been interviewed on mushrooms and their ability to mate with themselves via a parasexual cycle.

The parasexual cycle lets a mushroom exhange genetic material with itself, and thereby continue keeping a genetic variation. With the help of so called fairy rings, Markus and his supervisor are studying this phenomena and hope to be able to prove that it occurs in nature as well as previously shown in lab fungi.

Listen or read the whole interview (in Swedish) in the weekly magazine of The Science Radio.
