Mycotechnology has a crucial role to play in the 21st century. Fungi are bioprotectors, bioremediators, bio-fertilizers, drug-producers and involved in everyday life. Mycotechnology: Present Status and Future Prospects includes current and rare topics on mycotechnology, such as, molecular techniques (for analysis of soil fungi, diagnosis of ochratoxin-A producing fungi, identification of ectomycorrhizal fungi), SPPADBASE, bioactive sesquiterpenes, mycological applications of Raman spectroscopy, etc. K

  • Discusses latest developments in mycotechnology.
  • Provides new techniques and innovative ideas in fungal biotechnology.
  • Addresses molecular diagnosis of mycotoxins, soil microbes and ectomycorrhizal fungi.
  • Includes role of type culture collection in mycological research and applications, e.g. drug discovery from fungi.
  • Deals with the role of fungal chitinases.
  • Focuses on strategic role of AMF in agroecosystem and disease control.
  • Contains database of PCR primers for phytopathogenic fungi. This book is essential reading for mycologists, biotechnologists, microbiologists, botanists, agronomists, physicists, biochemists.
