The first antibiotics, such as penicillins, cephalosporins (e.g. cephalosporin C) and other families of antibiotics originated in fungi. I was wondering if anyone has experience in culturing such antibiotic-producing fungi and may advise me as to how to go about doing this. I thank you all for your time and help.
