Name any two species of fungus, which are used in the production of the antibiotics.
Many microbes are involved in production of antibiotics. Antibiotics are chemicals that are produce by some microbes ( most commonly bactaria and fungi) that kill other microbes.
• Penicillium chrysogenum- produces antibiotic penicillin which is effective against several bactarial infections by staphylococci and streptococci
• Cephalosporium- produces cephalosporins hamper the formation of peptidoglycan layer in bactaria and hence, act as a antibiotic against them.
