By Robert A. Samson (auth.), J. E. Smith (eds.)

The genus Aspergillus has a global distribution and is without doubt one of the commonest of all teams of fungi. they're most likely the best contami­ nants of usual and man-made natural items, and some species could cause infections in guy and animals. The aspergilli also are probably the most very important mycotoxin-producing teams of fungi while transforming into as contaminants of cereals, oil seeds, and different meals. now not all aspergilli are seen as complex contaminants, even if, as a number of species have had their metabolic features harnessed for advertisement use. The aspergilli have lengthy been linked within the some distance East with the koji degree of numerous nutrients fermentations, quite soy sauce and miso, and to that end as a resource of worthwhile enzymes. the power of those fungi to provide numerous natural acids, specially citric acid, has created significant commercial complexes world wide. conventional tools of pressure enhance­ ment were generally studied with the economic traces, whereas extra lately, recombinant DNA expertise has been utilized to the aspergilli with emphasis on heterologous protein construction. In compiling this ebook, i've been lucky to have the complete enthu­ siastic involvement of the authors, and to them I expand my very thankful thank you for quite often being on time and for generating such readable and authoritative chapters. jointly, we are hoping that our efforts will enhance the medical figuring out of this interesting team of filamentous fungi and extra their use within the box of biotechnology.
