Mycotechnology has a crucial role to play in the 21st century. Fungi are bioprotectors, bioremediators, bio-fertilizers, drug-producers and involved in everyday life. Mycotechnology: Present Status and Future Prospects includes current and rare topics on mycotechnology, such as, molecular techniques (for analysis of soil fungi, diagnosis of ochratoxin-A producing fungi, identification of ectomycorrhizal fungi), SPPADBASE, bioactive sesquiterpenes, mycological applications of Raman spectroscopy, etc.
