About this book
This book is based on a meeting on the Fungal Nucleus organised by the Physiology Group of the British Mycological Society and held in London in April 1980. The contributions of the authors provide a detailed picture of the knowledge of the cell nucleus in yeasts, filamentous fungi and slime moulds at the time. These organisms are important model eukaryotes for studies in cell and molecular biology. This volume deals with the ultra structure, biochemistry and genetics of the fungal nucleus and with the regulation of nuclear activity. It provides a useful source of reference for any one interested in the progressive study of mycology, genetics, microbiology and cell biology.
