Overview

Through the integration of bioinformatic, genetic, transcriptomic, proteomic, metabolomic, phenomic and other massive datasets, genomics is revealing exciting new insights into fungal cell biology. The central theme of this volume is the strong impact that genomics is having upon our understanding of fungal biology, across a wide range of species, including model yeasts (such as Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Schizosaccharomyces pombe), filamentous fungi (such as Neurospora crassa and Aspergillus nidulans) and pathogenic fungi (such as Magnaporthe grisae, Candida albicans, Crypoccus neoformans and Histoplasma capsulatum). World-renowned scientists address the following topics in these fungi: systems biology and evolution, circadian rhythms, apoptosis and stress responses, secretion, and environmental signalling networks. Particular emphasis is placed on fungal pathogenicity. Various genomic technologies are discussed, including genome-wide sequence comparisons, transcript profiling, proteomics, metabolomics and bioinformatics.
