Rhizopus sporangium: GOI-DBT foldscope scheme – Exploring the interaction of Phyllosphere microbiome on rice through foldscope analysis.

Rhizopus oryzae is a fungus that is a filamentous heterothallic microfungus that occurs as a saprotroph in soil, dung, and rotting vegetation. This species is very similar to Rhizopus stolonifer, but it can be distinguished by its smaller sporangia and air-dispersed sporangiospores. The samples were isolated from the soil around the rice field.
