Several excellent books have been published that address one or more aspects of the diverse field of industrial mycology, but none of them cover the entire process of fungal bioactive metabolites discovery. Until now. The Handbook of Industrial Mycology provides, in one volume, an overview of recent developments in industrial mycology with emphasis on the discovery of bioactive metabolites and, most importantly, their underlying biology and genetics. Two additional features distinguish this book from other books in the field: 1) most chapters are prepared using experimental data to illustrate theories and 2) the authors provide methodologies and experimental protocols in their chapters. Presenting a comprehensive overview of recent advances, the book provides a framework of basic methods, tools, and organizational principles for channeling fungal germplasm into the academic, pharmaceutical, and enzyme discovery laboratories. It covers the complex range of processes involved in the discovery, characterization, and profiling of bioactive fungal metabolites. The book includes examples of several recently marketed fungal metabolites and explores the impact of fungi on applications in the pharmaceutical, food and beverage, agricultural, and agrochemical industries.... or dearth of these genes in the early diverging Archiascomycetes  and Hemiascomycetes  compared with the Euascomycetes . As more fungal genomes are sequenced, key questions about the function, distribution, and evolution of these genes may be answered through comparative genomic and phylogenomic approaches. ... Sclerotia are a rich source of secondary metabolites, including several novel types of indole-diterpenes (Table 1) [24a27], and interestingly manyanbsp;...
