We have exciting news that we have been working on during the off-season. We are planning to sequence the DNA of up to 100 mushrooms this season with the help of Sarah, a student at U of I. We will be targeting mushrooms found in this area that have never been sequenced before. You can be part of this effort by joining us on forays. Whoo-Hoo!
