         I am a student at the University of New Mexico majoring in biolgy.
        Recently, I read in Bionet.genome.arabidopsis that an anti-cancer
        drug, "Taxol" is produced by a simple fungus which was discovered by
        a platn biologist using a small NSF grant.
         Does anybody could give me more information about the function and
        and characteristics of Taxol? In addition, I would like to know the
        name of the fungus that produces this compound, as well as the 
        mechanism(s) through which taxol acts on cells whith cancer. I would
        appreciate it if anyone could provide me this information.

                                        Thanks in advanced.
                                        Rafael Galindo.
