  • About the Author

In the past two decades, fungal biotechnology has progressed with fast pace. Advances in Fungal biotechnology is an important publication representing these advances and multiple roles played by fungi. This includes mostly industrial applications of fungi for the production of pigments, citric acid and vitamins, beneficial effects of mycorrhizal fungi, mycoviruses, biotransformation, and also various health implications.

  • Focuses on Biocontrol strategies by fungi.
  • Deals with the role of fungal enzymes--xylanases and laccases.
  • Discusses mycoviruses as an emerging tool for controlling pathogenic fungi.
  • Incorporates industrial applications like production of pigments, citric acid and vitamins
  • Addresses biotransformation by fungi.
  • Illustrates the role of mycorrhizal fungi in revegetation programmes.
  • Contains health implications (allergy, mycotoxins, tinea infections).
  • Includes role of internet in Mycology.

  • Developing Weed Control Technologies with Fungi
  • Management of Plant Pathogenic Fungi by Mycoviruses
  • Biotechnology: A New Tack on Fungal Resistant Crops
  • Properties and Commercial Applications of Xylanases from Fungi
  • Laccases of Fungi in Nature and Biotechnology
  • Enzymes from Mushrooms and their Industrial Applications
  • Pigments from Fungi: Industrial Perpspective
  • Microbial Transformation by Beauveria bassiana
  • Biotransformation of Terpenes by Fungi
  • Molecular and Physiological Aspects of Relevance in the Design of Industrial Strains of Lactose
  • Galactose-Metabolising Yeasts for Biotechnological Applications
  • Current advances in Citric Acid Production by Fungi
  • Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi used as Biofertilizers in Revegetation Programmes
  • Ectomycorrhizal Fungi and its Application in Forest Nursery
  • Bioproduction and Significance of Fungal Vitamins
  • Fungi from Indoor Environments in USA: An Overview
  • Recent Methods for Molecular Study of Fungal Community Structure with Special Reference to DGGE and TGGE
  • Tinea Capitis: Causal Organisms, Prognosis and Therapy
  • The Health Implications of Antifungal Drugs and Mycotoxin Interactions in Chronic Toxigenic Mold Exposures
  • The Impact of the Internet on Mycology
  • Index Readership: The book is essential reading for students, teachers and researchers of Botany, Mycology, Biotechnology, Microbiology and researchers working on sustainable technologies
