And no, I've never published ANYTHING on fungal biology.

I tried to get an image of the journal cover, but all the Omics Group page links are broken:


  1. Sounds like someone's trying to play off the legitimate journal Fungal Genetics and Biology.

  2. I just rechecked the site. The links from the 'Submissions' page the email links to are dead, but the main Omics and journal page links are fine.
