Mycotechnology : Present Status And Future Prospects by Mahendra Rai
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.
Audience of the Book :
|The book would be useful for a useful starting point for both teaching and research.|
The main features of the book are as follows:
1.Focuses on strategic role of AMF in agroecosystem and disease control.
2.Deals with the role of fungal chitinases.
3.Includes role of type culture collection in mycological research and applications, e.g. drug discovery from fungi.
