This latest volume addresses the contemporary issues related to recombination in filamentous fungi, EST data mining, fungal intervening sequences, gene silencing, DNA damage response in filamentous fungi, cfp genes of Neurospora, developmental gene sequences, site-specific recombination, heterologous gene expression, hybridization and microarray technology to enumerate biomass. This volume also analyse the current knowledge in the area of hydrophobins and genetic regulation of carotenoid biosynthesis. Over fifty world renowned scientist from both industry and academics provided in-depth information in the field of fungal genes and genomics.


Students and researchers in the areas of fungal genomics, genetics, biotechnology and bioinformatics.
