Mycology An International Journal on Fungal Biology: Special Issue Call for Papers
Deadline: 31 December 2019
Fungi play a crucial role in the balance of ecosystems and are more important to our lives than is assumed by the general public. Fungi not only serve as the source of many commercial enzymes and antibiotics, but also have the capacity to cause devastating diseases of both plants and animals. Model fungi are commonly studied yeasts, molds, mushrooms, filamentous or other fungal species chosen for investigating the fundamental questions relevant to both the fungal kingdom and beyond. Research on these fungi provides biological insights relevant to other organisms in areas such as genetics, cell biology, molecular biology and pathogenesis. Many advances in modern genetics, such as the one gene-one enzyme hypothesis, were achieved by the use of the red bread mold Neurospora crassa. Additionally, many important genes, such as cell cycle genes, were originally discovered in Saccharomyces cerevisiae and were found conserved in other organisms. Therefore, we call for papers describing one of the best known model fungi.
This special issue will cover but not limited to the following topics:
- Saccharomyces cerevisiae
- Schizosaccharomyces pombe
- Neurospora crassa
- Cryptococcus neoformans
- Aspergillus fumigatus
- Candida albicans
- Ustilago maydis
- Eremothecium gossypii
- Coprinopsis cinerea
- Magnaporthe grisea
Please submit your paper through our online submission system. All papers will be peer-reviewed. The submission deadline is December 31, 2019. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together in the 2nd issue 2020. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited.
