As you might know, one of the objectives of the HiPoAF project is to look into potential novel habitats of anaerobic gut fungi. Novel habitats also mean potential new C-sources for our fungi.
Back in the lab they unpacked the blender and turned the collected Ericaceae into a nutritious green powder. This powder will function as C-source in our next experiment series.
Stay tuned, to find out if anaerobic gut fungi subscribe to this green smoothie diet or not =)
