The Kingdom of fungi is known as the chemists of the earth, with highly advanced abilities to alter the chemistry of their surrounding environment, as well as decompose just about anything we’ve ever thrown at them! By studying and working with the incredible complexity of genetic code and enzymatic and chemical expressions of fungi, we unlock the potential to not only re-mediate the toxicity introduced to the world by the human species, but also advance our chemical technologies well beyond anything we could accomplish alone.
