Advances in Genetics provides the latest information on the rapidly evolving field of genetics, presenting new medical breakthroughs that are occurring as a result of advances in our knowledge of the topic. The book continually publishes important reviews of the broadest interest to geneticists and their colleagues in affiliated disciplines, critically analyzing future directions,

This thematic volume focuses on the advances and the future potential of the rapidly growing field of entomopathogenic fungi. With a focus on the genetics and molecular biology behind the progress, techniques developed to study all aspects of these fungi will be highlighted, and topics will span from systematics of fungi to how a fungus infects an insect and how that insect responds.

Review quote

"The book is organized with a logical flow and begins with an overview of the different phylo-genetic groups where insect pathogens evolved, providing ample context for the subsequent chapters exploring more detailed and nuanced subjects.

Researchers entering the field and established workers looking to include molecular methods in their approach will find this book serves as a crucial guide to the discoveries yet to come." --The Quarterly Review of Biology
