Fungal RNA Biology covers a wide range of RNA-mediated biological mechanisms in yeasts and filamentous fungi, including organisms widely used as models for general aspects of eukaryotic biology, and of great importance in industrial applications, medicine and agriculture. Despite the diversity of the estimated one million fungal species (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 fungal cells ranging from formation of coding and non-coding RNAs to mRNA translation, ribosomal RNA biogenesis, gene silencing, RNA editing and epigenetic regulation.

This Important new work provides:

  • Comprehensive overview of key RNA-dependent processes regulating fungal gene expression
  • Concise presentation of the latest insights in the field
  • Information from the most significant RNA database
  • Authoritative knowledge by international experts in the field
