About us

Welcome to Fungal Interactions (FI), the home in the Internet of Luis V. Lopez-Llorca’s lab. We hope your visit to our web will be of interest. Our research deals with the study and practical developments of fungal interactions with other organisms (specially pests and pathogens) and with  chitosan, a biopolymer with biological activity obtained from shellfish industry waste
