Advances In Fungal Biotechnology
Advances In Fungal Biotechnology by Mahendra Rai
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.Includes role of internet in Mycology.Illustrates the role of mycorrhizal fungi in revegetation programmes.
Audience of the Book :
|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.|
The main features of the book are as follows:
1. Deals with the role of fungal enzymesxylanases and laccases.
2. Discusses mycoviruses as an emerging tool for controlling pathogenic fungi.
3.Incorporates industrial applications, such as the production of pigments, citric acid and vitamins.
