About this book

Laboratory Protocols in Fungal Biology presents the latest techniques in fungal biology. This book analyzes information derived through real experiments, and focuses on cutting edge techniques in the field. The book comprises 57 chapters contributed from internationally recognised scientists and researchers. Experts in the field have provided up-to-date protocols covering a range of frequently used methods in fungal biology. Almost all important methods available in the area of fungal biology viz. taxonomic keys in fungi; histopathological and microscopy techniques; proteomics methods; genomics methods; industrial applications and related techniques; and bioinformatics tools in fungi are covered and complied in one book. Chapters include introductions to their respective topics, list of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and notes on troubleshooting. Each chapter is self-contained and written in a style that enables the reader to progress from elementary concepts to advanced research techniques.  Laboratory Protocols in Fungal Biology is a valuable tool for both beginner research workers and experienced professionals.

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“The book ‘Laboratory Protocols in Fungal Biology’ written by international researchers, offers diverse modern laboratory techniques in the field of fungal biology. … Each chapter is comprehensive, provides readily reproducible protocols and is easy to grasp by beginners. This book is a valuable guide to budding mycologists as well as professionals. It is recommended to all the Universities. A crucial Laboratory Manual for Fungal Biologists, Taxonomists, Fungal Biotechnologists, Biochemists, Histochemists, Plant Pathologists and Laboratory technicians.” (Melvina D’souza and Samantha C. Karunarathna, Fungal Diversity, December, 2014)

“This new book is very much hands-on, and covers an extraordinarily diverse range of topics. … Chapters are well-referenced to primary literature, and there are numerous links to website. There are numerous illustrations, most clearly presented, and in some cases using colour. This is a reference work that deserves to be accessible in all mycology laboratories … .” (IMA Fungus, Vol. 4 (1), 2013)
