Mycology Handbook from C.H.I.P.S.

Handbook of Fungal Biotechnology
Second Edition
edited by Dilip K. Arora

The last decade has seen fungal biotechnology flourish from the practical returns of advanced techniques like genetic recombination and robotics.

Completely revised to account for developments in fungal ecology, physiology, and biochemical processes—and the mounting list of industrial and semi-industrial applications—the Handbook of Fungal Biotechnology, Second Edition reigns as the top source on current molecular, biochemical, and medical technologies and commercial usages for fungi.
