Abstract

This material presents the results of a comparative analysis of the fungal diversity in the world system of microbial culture collections on one side with a variety of known fungal producers on the other side. The main VKM databases used are Fungal DC and Metabolites of Fungi, the central point of analysis - the fungal ability to synthesize promising metabolites for applied use. It indicates that the option of obtaining new promising strains from the collection funds is still underestimated by the scientific community. In particular it is shown that not more than 3% of the total fungal species fund contained in culture collections are used practically. The database Fungal DC developed in VKM is available on-line in www.vkm.ru and www.mycobank.org. It is possible their use will considerably expand the range of studied strains and lead to the acquisition of new scientifically significant data.
