A Blurb About The Author:

Before I begin writing about myself, I’d like to thank you for viewing my website.  I hope you enjoy what you see!  My name is Stephanie Kitzmann.  I am currently a freshman at the University of Wisconsin, La Crosse.  I am a prospective biology major with an emphasis on molecular biology as well as a Spanish minor. 

This website was created as a requirement of Organismal Biology at the University of WI, La Crosse .  We were able to choose any organism, and I chose Penicillium chrysogenum because of a number of different factors.  I feel that everyone knows the uses and benefits of this fungus; however, few people are able to say anything more about the organism.  This website was created with hopes to give an insight to the life of one fungus species and ultimately increase the appreciation for fungi in general.

This is my first published website, and I had a great time designing it.  Of course, as yourself and anyone else who may eventually read this, I am only human; please see the below contact information with regards to any errors you may encounter! 


I’d love to hear any feedback you may have on my webpage.  Please feel free to shoot me an e-mail with your comments: 

Thank you for your input!
