Molecular Industrial Mycology Systems and Applications for Filamentous Fungi

Edited By Sally A. Leong, Randy M. Berka Copyright 1991

    Ten articles provide an overview of the recently flowering research into the genetics and molecular biology of fungus species that are economically significant in industry. The contributors, from a variety of disciplines, report on work in such areas as industrial enzymes, antibiotics, toxins, heter
