Daren W. Brown and Robert H. Proctor present a new book on Fusarium: Genomics, Molecular and Cellular Biology
In this book, an international group of researchers critically reviews the most important current research on the genomics and molecular and cellular biology of Fusarium
. The opening chapter provides a fascinating introduction to the organism. Subsequent chapters deal with: sex and fruiting; genome structural dynamics; molecular genetics and genomic approaches to study pathogenesis in wheat; proteomic analysis of the fungus-host interaction; Repeat-induced point mutation, DNA methylation and heterochromatin in Fusarium graminearum
); nitrogen regulation network and its impact on secondary metabolism and pathogenicity; diversity of polyketide synthases; and plant responses to Fusarium
metabolites. This volume is essential for everyone working with Fusarium
and other filamentous fungi. A recommended book for all biology, agriculture and medical libraries read more ...
