Full description of the book "Molecular Biology of Food and Water Borne Mycotoxigenic and Mycotic Fungi":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 PDF 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 ePub future developments in improved, innovative molecular methods.
About the author R. Russell M. PatersonDr 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 & Climatic Change, and Current Opinion in Food Science. He has written numerous papers, books and chapters on heath aspects of fungi towards humans, particularly in relation to mycotoxin and fungal contamination of food and drinking water. He has a total publication list of c. 200. Nelson Lima earned his PhD in engineering sciences (biotechnology) from the University of Minho, Portugal, in 1993 and has been a full professor of the University of Minho since March 2004. His primarily research is related to food and environmental mycology with the integration of polyphasic approaches for fungal identification. He has also been involved for more than 25 years in the educational research field, mainly in science and environmental promotion and education. Since 1996, he is head of the fungal culture collection, Micoteca da Universidade do Minho (MUM). He was member of the executive board of the World Federation of Culture Collections (WFCC) from 2007 to 2010 and the collection officer of the European Culture Collections' Organisation (ECCO) from 2003 to 2006. Currently he is the president of ECCO. He has been the evaluator or consultant of different funding agencies such as in Chile (CONICYT), Brazil (FINEP), Belgium (BELSOP), and the European Commission. He has been partner of several EU and Brazilian research funding projects, as well as coordinator or partner of several Portuguese research projects. In Portugal, Brazil, Mexico, and Chile, he has supervised 21 PhD and 28 master's theses.
