The genus Chrysosporium, its physiology and biotechnological potential

Rajendra Kumar Singh Kushwaha

Department of Botany, Christ Church College, Kanpur, India
The genus Chrysosporium is reviewed including its 11 species without intercalary conidia, 29 species with intercalary conidia, three species with uncertain position and four undescribed species with their report of isolation, physiology, antagonistic, keratinolytic and pathogenic potentials. Research revealed considerable biotechnological potential for recycling keratinous waste in soil and secretion of enzymes and antimicrobials. Its taxonomic relation with dermatophytes and their relatives is of immense importance. Germplasm collection of Chrysosporium and its teleomorphic connections is aplaused.
