How to use fungi in a sentence?

  1. Adrian Erlebacher:

There’s no way to treat women against all those different microbes, but here we’ve identified this pathway, and by circumventing this pathway associated with these infections, we can provide more uniform protection against stillbirth.

  2. Mike Super:

    What's nice about proteins like this fcMBL from the innate immune system is that they bind the sugars which are part of the cell wall of the pathogens. They bind to the cell wall of bacteria, of fungi, of many viruses and many parasites and they bind to toxins as well.

  3. Arturo Casadevall:

  4. Andreas Essig:

  5. Lewis Thomas:

    Ants are so much like human beings as to be an embarrassment. They farm fungi, raise aphids as livestock, launch armies into war, use chemical sprays to alarm and confuse enemies, capture slaves, engage in child labor, exchange information ceaselessly. They do everything but watch television.
