Cinnaminson, NJ, May 9th
EMSL’s Senior Mycologist, Dr. Željko Jurjevic, along with scientists from around the world, have discovered new Cladosporium species from indoor environments. More than 500 new Cladosporium isolates from sample collected indoors were investigated from a worldwide survey of indoor mycobiota; collected mainly in China, Europe, New Zealand, North America and South Africa.
The scientists used a polyphasic approach, employing three loci, as well as morphological examinations and cultural characteristics to identify and delimitate the species’ identity. Of the 46 species identified, there have been 16 introduced as new taxa, with Cladosporium halotolerans proving to be the most frequently isolated Cladosporium species indoors.
“We are very proud of Dr. Jurjevic’s discoveries and the overall dedication of our microbiology department at EMSL,” said Dr. Jason Dobranic, Ph.D., Vice President of Microbiology and Life Sciences at EMSL Analytical, Inc. “Dr. Jurjevic’s impressive accomplishment is a testament to EMSL’s goal of providing high-quality data to our clients while providing breakthrough information to help the overall industry and scientific community.”
