    Book details

Fungi are a diverse group of organisms, studied widely because of their commercial importance in biotechnology, agriculture and medicine, and because they provide simple model systems for illuminating the eukaryotic mode of life. The development of the techniques of molecular biology has opened up new areas of mycological research, with profound consequences such as the sequencing of the first entire eukaryotic genome. This book focuses on the application of molecular and cell biology to mycology and presents examples of how these approaches are elucidating long-held problems in areas as diverse as animal and plant pathology, protein expression and evolution. Aimed at advanced undergraduates taking courses in mycology, applied biology, biotechnology, fungal biology and fungal genetics, this textbook will also serve postgraduates needing an introduction to modern fungal research.

' … this is one of the best … summaries which step ahead of the orthodox and provide modern overviews … It deserves to be read and taken note of.' Neil A. R. Gow, Microbiology Today' … there is much of relevance and interest in this book, and it will have value as 'recommended reading' at various levels of teaching …' Trends in Microbiology' … a valuable source of information and a good presentation of scientific progress in various mycological fields.'
