About the background art from the slider above
Scanning electron microscopic (SEM) image of Trichophyton sp. conidia and a spiraling coiled hyphae, which in related fungi can be an early step in sexual reproduction. Genomic and population genetic analyses reported by Persinoti et al. reveal the extreme clonality of global Trichophyton rubrum isolates and suggest that this species may be asexual or cryptically sexual.
