  • Fungi: Develop new information on taxonomy, phylogeny, distribution and biology of fungi, including systematic research related to biosecurity/alien invasive species as well as species involved in the development of bioproducts.

  • Build and maintain reference collections and databases of fungi: Glomeromycota in vitro Collection (GINCO); AAFC Vascular Plant Herbarium (DAO) and National Mycological Herbarium (DAOM). Support for Canadian Collection of Fungal Cultures (CCFC).

  • Development of phylogenomics capability, rapid detection and identification tools.

  • Accurate identification, information and related training for scientific research in taxonomy, fungi propagation and biodiversity protection.
