In mycology;the study of fungi DNA sequence data is playing a critical role in answering challenging questions about the identification, distribution, and relationships of fungus species.(3)In our research we plan to collect samples of mushrooms throughout South Huntington and try to correctly barcode these different species. Mushrooms are a very important part of an ecosystem. They help in the processes of decomposition and breakdown of organic matter in the forest. Mushrooms are a vital to the growth of trees and are biological controls of other fungal species.
