Fungi Bio-prospects in Sustainable Agriculture: Fungal metabolites and Nano-technology is a three-volume series that has been designed to explore the huge potential of the many diverse applications of fungi to human life. The series unveils the latest developments and scientific advances in the study of the biodiversity of fungi, extremophilic fungi, and fungal secondary metabolites and enzymes, while also presenting cutting-edge molecular tools used to study fungi. Readers will learn all about the recent progress and future potential applications of fungi in agriculture, environmental remediation, industry, food safety, medicine, and nanotechnology.
Volume 3 provides a comprehensive account of fungal metabolites, including bioactive and host origin compounds, along with other biomolecules, and mycotoxins. This book includes the applications, limitations, and prospects of working with fungal secondary metabolites. The authors explore fungi in the myco-mediated synthesis of nanoparticles along with their biotechnological, industrial, and agricultural uses. This book also discusses advancements in medical mycology for the diagnosis and treatment of fungal infections. Furthermore, this book provides up-to-date and in-depth knowledge about the adoption of advanced CRISPR-Cas9 technology in fungi for gene editing
