MycoKey aims to unlock new knowledge and to valorize existing knowledge and data by rapid dissemination to research partners and stakeholders in the chain.
In the MycoKey programme all scientific peer reviewed publications are available through open access. Research data will be deposited in public data repositories for (re)-analysis exploitation and dissemination free of charge.
In this page you can find publications describing the scientific results arising from project’s activities.
Spent mushroom substrate from Pleurotus eryngii proved to be a suitable source of aflatoxin-degrading enzymes. A crude extract of this by-product of mushroom cultivation is easy to be obtained, not toxic, inexpensive, eco-friendly, and could degrade up to 90% of AFB1, thus qualifying as a potential technology for remediation of contaminated commodities.
