Bacterial-Fungal Interactions

Fungi and bacteria can form a range of physical associations that depend on various modes of molecular communication for their development and functioning .Physical Complexes between Bacteria and Fungi are found in many distinct environments, such as the lungs of cystic fibrosis patients, the human oral cavity, the production of foods such as cheese, wine, tempeh, and sourdough and agricultural and forest environments. The combination of physical associations and molecular interactions between bacteria and fungi can result in a variety of different outcomes for each partner. In turn, these changes may affect the influence of the bacterial-fungal complex. Consequences of Bacterial-Fungal Interactions have profound consequences for both organisms and changes in the bacterial and fungal partners' physiology, life cycles, and survival. Applications of BFIs found in various biological fields i.e. Food Processing, Fermentation and brewing, Cheese ripening, Bioremediation of pollutants, natural product discovery and synthetic biology. Mixed bacterial-fungal communities play a key role in determining the taste, quality, and safety of a wide range of foods, like wine production, cheese manufacture involves complex microbial ecosystems where BFIs play a central role.
