"To facilitate identification of yeasts for industrial, pharmaceutical, and biochemical applications, this fully updated edition presents the latest discoveries in yeast propagation and morphology. Kurtzman (National Ctr. for Agricultural Utilization Research, Agricultural Research Svc., U.S. Dept. of Agriculture), Jack W. Fell (Rosenstiel Sch. of Marine & Atmospheric Science, Univ. of Miami), and Teun Boekhout (CBS-KNAW Fungal Biodiversity Ctr., Utrecht, Netherlands), along with 73 scholarly contributors, outline the taxa, characteristics, and practical uses of roughly 1500 yeasts under the Ascomycete and Basidiomycete phyla. Although recently published, single-volume paperbacks-such as Horst Feldmann's Yeast: Molecular and Cell Biology (Wiley-Blackwell, 2010)-also cover the fungus's varied genetic profiles, this meticulously detailed, three-volume set with its carefully annotated illustrations and phylograms will prove most essential to biotechnology and pharmaceutical collections."--Library Journal
Descripción del producto
The Yeasts: A Taxonomic Study is a three-volume book that covers the taxonomic aspect of yeasts. The main goal of this book is to provide important information about the identification of yeasts. It also discusses the growth tests that can be used to identify different species of yeasts, and it examines how the more important species of yeasts provide information for the selection of species needed for biotechnology.
• Volume 1 discusses the identification, classification and importance of yeasts in the field of biotechnology.
• Volume 2 focuses on the identification and classification of ascomycetous yeasts.
• Volume 3 deals with the identification and classification of basidiomycetous yeasts, along with the genus Prototheca.
- High-quality photomicrographs and line drawings
- Detailed phylogenetic trees
- Up-to-date, clearly presented yeast taxonomy and systematic, easy-to-use reference sequence accession numbers to allow for correct identification
