[WEBINAR] Ergot Alkaloids: From Witchcraft to Biotechnology

Ergots alkaloids are secondary metabolites of certain fungi. Their production occurs in the sclerotia of the Claviceps species on infected cereal plants during cool, wet weather with rye being the main host. It is important to detect these mycotoxins, as ergot alkaloids can remain in stored grains and adversely impact both humans and animals.

How does ergotism impact humans and animals? What are current regulatory trends? What are recent relevant analytical developments?
