Assessment of Mushroom Diversity in Forests around Kathmandu Valley through Molecular Characterization of Nuclear ITS region.
Funding Agency: Nepal Academy of Science and Technology (NAST), Nepal


The aim of this project is to perform molecular identification of mushroom specimens found in Kathmandu valley and establish an online database incorporating both morphological and genetic information. As such, the project aims to raise awareness towards mushroom diversity and the consequences of habitat loss resulting from human intrusions into forests areas of Kathmandu.
