Brings together detailed practical guidance from experienced researchers using a full range of genetic, genomic, cellular and biochemical methods. The authors describe laboratory procedures that have been proven effective for the investigation of a wide variety of fungal species. They give key background information, technical tips and detailed experimental protocols, which will prove invaluable to researchers and students studying filamentous fungi.
Protocols are described in all but the first chapter and the hope is that, by analogy with a recently published cookery book, they can turn us all into research god(esse)s. Microbiology Today " a really fine collection of step-by-step methods descriptions that cover an enormously wide range of experimental approaches, and which come from a well-selected team of genuine experts ... there should be a copy in every laboratory."
