It covers several aspects of the RNA-mediated mechanisms that regulate gene expression in model yeasts and filamentous fungi, organisms of great importance for industry, medicine and agriculture. It is estimated that there are more than one million fungal species on the Earth. Despite their diversity (saprophytic, parasitic and mutualistic), fungi share common features distinctive from plants and animals and have been grouped taxonomically as an independent eukaryotic kingdom. In this book, 15 chapters written by experts in their fields cover the RNA-dependent processes that take place in a fungal cell ranging from formation of coding and non-coding RNAs to mRNA translation, ribosomal RNA biogenesis, gene silencing, RNA editing and epigenetic regulation.
Comprehensive overview of key RNA-dependent processes regulating fungal gene expression
Concisely presents the latest insights in the field
Includes information from the most significant RNA database
Written by international experts in the field
In this volume, the editors have brought together contributions from a broad spectrum of research groups with the aim of providing a valuable resource for students and researchers studying RNA-dependent processes . The editors are to be congratulated on producing a scholarly and in-depth review, which will be a boon to not only fungal cell biologists, but those concerned with the molecular biology of eukaryotes generally.
