Cellular and Molecular Biology of Filamentous Fungi is an ideal starting point for any research study of filamentous fungi. It incorporates the latest findings from five disciplines: physiology, taxonomy, genomics, molecular biology, and cell biology. Its extensive use of illustrations and tables also makes it an excellent textbook for both graduate and undergraduate students, helping them easily grasp and apply new concepts. This comprehensive title begins with a historical perspective, cell morphology and taxonomy, and then moves on to such topics as cell growth, development, metabolism, and pathogenesis. The book covers model organisms in detail as well as a broad variety of dimorphic and “obligate” filamentous fungal species. You’ll learn how individual species have adapted themselves to highly diverse ecological niches. In addition, comparisons to studies of the yeasts Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Schizosaccharomyces pombe help you better understand the nature of fungi and the underlying evolution that leads to diversity in this fascinating kingdom.
