Diatoms - Definition, Structure, Life Cycle, Importance

What is Diatom? Definition of Diatom A diatom is a tiny, single-celled algae with a hard shell made of silica, found in oceans, waterways, and soil. They play a crucial role in oxygen production, nutrient cycling, and the food web of aquatic ecosystems. Scientific classification of Diatom Domain: Eukaryota Clade: Diaphoretickes Clade: SAR Clade: Stramenopiles … Read more

Chytridiomycota Overview

Chytridiomycota Overview

Chytridiomycota is a sub-group of zoosporic organisms from the kingdom Fungi. They are also known as chytrids. Named after the Ancient Greek word khutridion, which means “little pot”, it refers to the structure that contains unreleased zoospores. The earliest diverging fungal lineages are the Chytrids. Their membership in kingdom Fungi can be seen with chitin cell wall, posterior whiplash flagellum and absorptive nutrition. They also use glycogen to store energy and produce lysine through the a-amino acid (AAA).

Phylum Ascomycota Overview

Phylum Ascomycota Overview

The Ascomycota sac fungi is monophyletic and comprises about 75% of the described fungi. It comprises the majority of fungi that mix together with algae to create lichens as well as the vast majority of fungi do not have morphological evidence for sexual reproduction. Among the Ascomycota are some famous fungi: Saccharomyces cerevisiae, the yeast of commerce and foundation of the baking and brewing industries (not to mention molecular developmental biology), Penicillium chrysogenum, producer of penicillin, Morchella esculentum, the edible morel, and Neurospora crassa, the “one-gene-one-enzyme” organism. 

Epidermophyton floccosum

Epidermophyton floccosum

Epidermophyton floccosum is a type of filamentous  fungus which causes nail and skin infection in human beings. The anthropophilic dermatophyte may cause diseases like tinea pedis (athlete’s foot) and tinea cruris, tinea corporis and even onychomycosis. The diagnostic methods for fungal infection are physical examination, testing for culture, and molecular examination. Treatment for fungal infections … Read more
