is the application of Mycology for producing evidence in terms of criminal
investigation and their further evaluation in the court of law. The problem
with relative neglect of Mycology in Forensic science is currently leading to
insufficient knowledge, in order to support the needs for fungal expertise in
areas of criminal investigation. Mucor hiemalis and Penicillium griseofulvum
had been used to determine
the minimum interval since death, Coprinus comatu...
solid raw Lima beans (Phaseolus lunatus)
were fermented for a period of ten days, chemical (proximate composition,
antinutritional contents, pH, and total titratable acidity) and physical
changes (temperature, odour,
and texture) occurring during the fermentation of the lima beans were monitored.
The fermentation was carried out for 48, 96, 120, 168 and 192 hours respectively
at ambient temperature. The microbial load was as well monitored.
Microorganisms isolated fr...
