Fungi: Biology and Applications is a comprehensive, balancedintroduction of the biology, biotechnological applications andmedical significance of fungi. With no prior knowledge of thesubject assumed, the opening chapters offer a broad overview of thebasics of fungal biology, in particular the physiology and geneticsof fungi. Later chapters move on to include more detailed coverageof topics such as proteomics, bioinformatics, heterologous proteinexpression, medical mycology, anti-fungal drug development andfunction, fungal biotechnology and fungal pathogens of economicallyimportant plants.Carefully structured, each chapter contains self-assessmentexercises with answers included at the end of the book to enhancestudent understanding.
* A comprehensive treatment of the medical and economic importanceof fungi to everyday life
* Chapters include revision sections and problems to reinforce keyconcepts
* Invaluable for undergraduates taking a first course on fungalbiology or mycology.
* also of interest to those working within the field looking for anup-to-date introduction.
