About this book

With the development of fungal transformation systems and the deciphering of an increasing number of fungal genomes, this diverse clade of heterotrophic eukaryotic organisms has proven to be ideal for molecular work and highly serviceable as model systems to study basic processes with results that are applicable to many organisms, including humans.

In this volume, experts in the field provide an up-to-date set of practical protocols covering a range of frequently used methods used to study molecular and cellular aspects of fungal biology.

Media reviews
From the reviews: "This volume of methods and step-by-step protocols for fungal molecular biology deals with three areas: (i) fungal transformation and gene knockout; (ii) detection and quantitation of fungi; and (iii) microscopy and protein analysis. The authors of the chapters are world leaders in their respective fields and the book ! still a valuable laboratory resource. ! this is a good place for a freshman fungal lab worker to start - and it also provides a useful list of contacts who no doubt could field further questions." (Neil A. R. Gow, Microbiology Today, 2010)
