Truffle Research

Human interest and fascination with truffle fungi has fueled truffle research over the past 100+ years, and it continues to do so today.

Current truffle research is diverse and uses modern and multi-omic approaches to address different questions related to truffle diversity and function, mating and biology, morphology and development, ecology and symbiosis, genome and evolution, as well as agronomics and food science.

Truffle research has long benefited from truffle dogs able to smell and find truffles in natural and cultivated lands, as well as truffle dog owners and other truffle enthusiasts who share their knowledge, interest and discoveries.
