Poster #29: ISABELLE GALLAND – The Phylogenetic Enigma of the Psychedelic Mushroom genus, Psilocybe

Faculty mentor: Bryn Dentinger

This research project investigates the biological relationships between species in Fungi genus Psilocybe. The genetic database for Psilocybe, psilocybin-producing mushrooms, is lacking sufficient data due to only relying on a small fraction of known species for sequencing. This leads to discrepancies in the phylogeny.By contributing to this research, we will generate a comprehensive, species-level DNA barcode database for Psilocybe which will serve as a reference for future Psilocybe research.
