Oomycete Genetics and Genomics Diversity, Interactions and Research Tools



Oomycete Genetics and Genomics Diversity, Interactions and Research Tools by Kurt Lamour, Sophien Kamoun

This book brings together the knowledge from and tools for genetic and genomic research into oomycetes to help solve the problems this pathogen poses to crops and animals. Armed with the information presented here, researchers can use oomycete data to solve practical problems and gain insight into future areas of interest. Key Features:* Offers an up-to-date coverage of research into oomycetes - which has advanced with biochemical and molecular analyses in recent years* Helps researchers use oomycete data to solve practical problems, like damage to crop and animal resources* Includes a section on interactions with animal hosts* Offers perspective on future areas of research* Assembles an international author base


The whole is extremely well-produced, and I especially liked the tipped-in signature of colour plates on coated paper comprising colour versions of eight half-tone figures from various chapters. It also seems as well up-to-date as can be expected in such multiauthored works, with many papers from 2008 being cited. And the price is reasonable by current standards for a book of this quality. The editors are to be congratulated on marshalling such a work, which clearly merits wide circulation amongst the broader mycological community. (IMA Fungus, December 2010)
