The Mycology Lab is involved in teaching biological sciences across all year levels at the University of Melbourne, from 1st year introductory biology to graduate level classes. There is no specific class dedicated to fungal biology at the University, but the fungi feature in many lectures. Being based in the former School of Botany, much of the teaching relates to the courses developed during that era. Continued strengths in this field can be found in the Plant Sciences link.
The Plant Sciences Major was revised in 2020-2021, with details available from the University handbook.
Alex Idnurm is the course coordinator for BOTA30005 Plant Molecular Biology and Biotechnology, and also teaches in BOTA20001 Green Planet and BOTA20005 Plant Biodiversity, amongst other courses.
COVID-19 update: the University is aiming to provide as much dual delivery (i.e. in person and online) teaching as possible. While this works for many courses, those with practical aspects are difficult to delivery online. A recommendation is if aiming to do BOTA30005 online in semester 2 of 2021, to postpone that to semester 1 of 2022 for the in person practical class component.
