Thermophilic Microorganisms

Fu-Li Li presents a new book on Thermophilic Microorganisms
In this book leading scientists highlight the current progress in the most topical areas of research providing a timely overview of the field. The book reviews the ecology, enzymology and genetics of thermophiles and includes topics on the diversity and ecological roles of thermophiles, biochemical properties of thermostable biocatalysts and their applications, polyamines and the impact of viruses on thermophiles, DNA replication and metabolic engineering of thermophiles, and much more. An important feature of the book is the extensive focus on the industrial application of thermostable catalysts including alcohol dehydrogenase, glycoside hydrolase, protease and lipases. In addition the authors discuss current technical challenges and future development trends. The book is of major importance to academic microbiologists as well as those interested in industrial applications and is a recommended guide for scientists in the fields of microbiology, enzymology, molecular biology and ecology. read more ...

Human Pathogenic Fungi review

Excerpt from a book review of Human Pathogenic Fungi: Molecular Biology and Pathogenic Mechanisms
"The editors ... have managed to bring together 34 of the most active and leading researchers in the field to produce such a review ... the coloured diagrams and photographs are so informative and(or) stunning , that I can imagine that some of these will become much used in teaching medical mycology courses ... This is a carefully edited and well-produced reference work that deserves to be widely available in laboratories exploring the molecular biology and pathogenicity mechanisms of human pathogenic fungi" from IMA Fungus (2014) 5: 56-57. read more ...
