Endophytic Fungi: The Full Story of the Untapped Treasure covers the developments in endophytic fungal research from beginning to the end by the eminent researchers involved in the field. It sheds light on the endophytic fungal current research, challenges, and future possibilities, the trending recent topics in the plant-fungal endophytes' biodynamics for sustainable development of bioproducts and its applications are supported in large-scale biosynthesis of industrially and pharmaceutical important biomolecules.Endophytic Fungi: The Full Story of the Untapped Treasure highlights the bioprospecting and applied aspects of endophytic fungal communities from diverse hosts and discusses the practical applications of such endophytes in detail. It also reviews recent strategies on alternative sustainable sources of medicines such as secondary metabolites of fungi instead of over collection of plants under prohibiting of biodiversity conventions. The uniqueness of this book is the inclusion of updated bioinformatics-based strategies and its importance in bioactive molecules produced by endophytic fungi. The book addresses one of the most eminent issues in this field: how to translate the potential that endophytic fungi hold in stable practical application.

Metabolomics for Personalized Vaccinology provides insight into the importance of personalized vaccines in the clinical and research environments. It explores the development of personalized vaccines, which requires in-depth knowledge of the patient’s health status, particularly the immune system, and on metabolomics, the closest indicator of the disease phenotype. Specifically, the book provides an understanding of how metabolomics might be employed in personalized vaccinology and how the metabolic pathway of the host’s system is altered by vaccine administration.Over the past few years, researchers have published articles on personalized vaccines, but these are sparse. Therefore, compiling information on this topic gives the reader an overview of the progress of the field, despite being at its infancy.Metabolomics for Personalized Vaccinology is ideally suited for researchers and postgraduate students who are interested in clinical and nonclinical studies where metabolites are used for the identification of disease and therapeutic targets.

Nowadays, the field of microbiology is undergoing a revolutionary change due to the emergence of Artificial Intelligence (AI). AI is being used to analyze massive data in a predictable form, about the behavior of microorganisms, to solve microbial classification-related problems, exploring the interaction between microorganisms and the surrounding environment. It also helps to extract novel microbial metabolites which have been used in various fields like medical, food and agricultural industries. As the pace of innovation in Microbiology is accelerating, the use of AI in these industries will be beneficial. AI will not only show its extraordinary potential in expanding the market of antibiotics, food, and agriculture but also offer an eco-friendly, safer, and profitable solution to the respective industries. It would be challenging to search out specific features and discuss future research on AI in microbiology with a wide perspective.

In 2018, the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses (ICTV) approved significant changes leading to a comprehensive taxonomic scheme, allowing the global organization of the virus world (also known as virus megataxonomy). Aquaculture Virology, Second Edition updates the current knowledge on aquatic animal viruses so that all virus families (including those with many newly discovered aquatic animal viruses and those with previously unclassified aquatic animal viruses that have been now assigned) are available under one cover, increasing the number of book chapters from 37 in the first edition to 44 chapters in the second edition. The aims, philosophy, target audience, focus, and format of this second edition of Aquaculture Virology remain unchanged. Like the first edition, this book is a systematic and concise resource useful to anyone involved with or looking to move into aquaculture and fisheries. Clinical veterinarians, aquaculture disease practitioners, biologists, farmers, and all those in industry, government, or academia interested in aquatic animal virology will find this book extremely useful.

Genetics and Evolution of Infectious Diseases, Third Edition discusses the evolving field of infectious diseases and their continued impact on the health of populations, especially in resource-limited areas of the world where they must confront the dual burden of death and disability due to infectious and chronic illnesses. Although substantial gains have been made in public health interventions for the treatment, prevention, and control of infectious diseases, in recent decades the world has witnessed the emergence of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and the COVID-19 pandemic, increasing antimicrobial resistance, and the emergence of many new bacterial, fungal, parasitic, and viral pathogens.Fully updated and revised, this new edition presents the consequences of such diseases, the evolution of infectious diseases, the genetics of host-pathogen relationship, and the control and prevention strategies that are, or can be, developed. This book offers valuable information to biomedical researchers, clinicians, public health practitioners, decisions-makers, and students and postgraduates studying infectious diseases, microbiology, medicine, and public health that is relevant to the control and prevention of neglected and emerging worldwide diseases.
