Welcome to NEFOM

NEFOM is a research network aimed to link and strengthen the collaboration between North European research groups working with molecular ecology of fungi. Our main focus is on soil-dwelling fungi in Northern ecosystem types, such as temprerate and boreal forest and arctic tundra.

Our main activities are thematic annual network meetings, working group meetings, PhD courses and support of inter-lab study visits. Many of our activities are centered around the open-source database for fungal DNA sequences, UNITE.
