Mycotheca dell'Università degli Studi di Torino



The Mycotheca Universitatis Taurinensis (MUT) is the fungal collection of the Department of Life Sciences and Systems Biology of the University of Turin (Italy). The MUT is one of the most important banks of fungal biodiversity in Italy, and it has a great value from the systematic, ecological and applications point of views.
The aims of the MUT are the acquisition, identification, characterization, preservation and distribution of both macromycetes and micromycetes.

The MUT is the only structure, among the Italian collections, which operates according to the standards of ISO 9001, achieved in 2006.
