About this book


Since publication of the first edition of Volume III in 1996, a number of areas in fungal biochemistry and molecular biology have both expanded and rapidly advanced, especially those areas that incorporate the new resource of genomics. In light of these developments, all the chapters of this new edition have been fully revised and completely updated. Still further, the text now contains eleven new chapters, which cover either new topics or have been written by new contributing authors.

The second edition of Volume III includes: Biochemistry and molecular genetics; regulation of gene expression; organelle biogenesis; response factors influencing metabolism; molecular biology of carbohydrates and lignin; molecular aspects of biochemical pathways.

"The new edition is a 'must' for all major mycology libraries ..." (Mycological Research)

From the reviews of the first edition
"... an excellent reference book which is well presented and illustrated." (Bibliography of Systematic Mycology)
"... this book will be very useful for researchers and teaching staff." (Research in Microbiology)

From the reviews of the second edition:

"It comprises 21 chapters involving 50 authors … . The individual chapters are prepared to the highest standards and tackle subjects where authoritative overviews were timely. … The new edition is a ‘must’ for all major mycology libraries … ." (Mycological Research, Vol.108 (10), 2004)
