The original work, published in 1985, appeared at the first interface between classical fungal genetics and modern genetic engineering, reflecting the excitement of a young and promising discipline. Since then, molecular mycology has come of age. The entirely new More Gene Manipulations in Fungi reviews state-of-the-art research with an intent to inform the researcher about what can be achieved by studying fungal systems with the tools of molecular biology. This book is a current reference providing overviews as well as practical information.

Key Features

  • Updates Bennett and Lasure's classic Gene Manipulations in Fungi published in 1985
  • Describes fungi for the study of fundamental problems in biology and biochemistry
  • Explains both classical and molecular genetics for the study of fungi
  • Contains special appendixes on genetic analysis, growth media, and coding conventions
  • Demonstrates the progress of molecular mycology since the seminal paper published by Beadle and Tatum in 1941


Academic and industrial researchers and graduate students in molecular genetics, mycology, biotechnology, and cell biology
