About this book


Several different transformation techniques have been developed over the years and readily shown to be decisive methods in fungal biotechnology. While Volume 1 provided its readers with an in-depth understanding of how the transformation of DNA is used to understand the genetic basis behind these fungal traits, Volume 2 of this text describes the transformation associated methods, tools, and many relevant elements available to the modern fungal researcher.

With ample illustrative examples and protocols, Genetic Transformation Systems in Fungi, Volume 2 is meant not only as a reference guide for the experienced researcher, but also as an a learning tool for the emerging scientist.
