Forensic science aims to serve society by advancing justice. It is important that forensic scientists should aware of mold and fungal growth in their laboratory premises and should take actions, wherever possible, to reduce the growth of harmful fungi as well as unnecessary potential hazard. The mycotoxins produced by these fungi create several diseases. The present scenario of mold and fungi management in Indian forensic laboratories is grim. However there is an emerging concern regarding fungi management. It should be mandatory for the forensic laboratories to ensure any adverse effect to human health and environment. This study intends to create awareness regarding identification, prevention and remediation of fungi, mold and mycotoxins in forensic laboratories.
