Molecular Biology of Food and Water Borne Mycotoxigenic and Mycotic Fungi free pdf A part of the Food Microbiology Series, Molecular Biology of Food and Water Borne Mycotoxigenic and Mycotic Fungi reveals similarities between fungi present in/on food and water and those that cause human fungal diseases. The book covers food borne mycotoxigenic fungi in depth and examines food borne fungi from the standpoint of mycoses (i.e. fungal growth on humans) as well as mycotoxin diseases and includes contributions from a wide range of international experts in food borne fungal pathogens research. Designed to be a single source on food borne human fungal pathogens including mycotoxigenic fungi, the book presents: * Basic concepts of developments in nomenclature and bar coding * Authoritative description of key molecular techniques applicable to food borne fungal pathogens research * State-of-art review of molecular biology, genome structure, epidemiology, pathogenesis, diagnosis, control, and prevention of major food borne fungal pathogens * Thorough discussion of alternative methods to those involving nucleic acids The book provides higher-level knowledge of which foods and water can contain potentially dangerous fungi. It includes background information on basic mycology, covers identification methods, and discusses molecular biological and other biochemical methods, and supplies information on vaccines against fungi. It is a reliable roadmap to future developments in improved, innovative molecular methods.

About R. Russell M. Paterson

Dr Paterson has a BSc Honours (2:1) in Applied Microbiology from the University of Strathclyde, UK. His MSc and PhD were in Chemistry from the University of Manchester, UK. He undertook a 2.5 year postdoctoral appointment at the Boyce Thompson Institute at Cornell University, New York, USA. Dr Paterson worked at the Centre for Industrial Innovation, Strathclyde University for 2 years before being employed at the international non-governmental organization, CABI, UK where he was the Senior Scientist researching Fungal Natural Products. He was awarded the IOI Professorial Chair in Plant Pathology at the Universiti Putra Malaysia, Malaysia in 2008. Currently, he is employed as a researcher at the Centre for Biological Engineering, University of Minho, Portugal. He has worked in many countries particularly in S. E. Asia and was central to a fungal bioprospecting project in the Iwokrama rain forest of Guyana. The European Research Council confirmed that he is an External Reviewer of Projects (2012, 2013). He was coordinating editor of Mycopathologia, and is an editor of Current Enzyme Inhibition, Journal of Earth Science
