In the last decade the discipline of mycology has been substantially changed by new research technologies. In particular DNA-based tools for the investigation of fungal taxonomy, signal transduction and regulation, and biosynthetic potential have accelerated advances in mycological knowledge.
This volume presents a selection of exciting issues on basic and applied aspects of fungal physiology and genetics. In 18 chapters renowned experts provide an overview of traditional as well as current and future aspects of potential application of fungi in biotechnology.
