Abstract:

Fungi are eukaryotic achlorophyllous organisms live in wide array of habit and habitats on earth. Being non-photosynthetic fungi exhibit anabsortive mode nutrition, which lead to Saprophyte, Parasite or Mutualistic existence. Fungi is second largest group of organisms outnumber by insects only. Recent estimate suggested that, around 2.2- 3.8 million fungi are there on planet. Fungi are known to produce many antibiotics, bio-active molecules, organic acids and secondary metabolites etc. Fungi so far have been exploited very poorly and yet have a huge potential in bio-control, bioremediation and novel compound.
