  • Molecular Diversity and PCR-detection of Toxigenic Fusarium Species and Ochratoxigenic Fungi

    Molecular Diversity and PCR-detection of Toxigenic Fusarium Species and Ochratoxigenic Fungi

    The present issue contains contributions which cover many aspects of the molecular diversity, phylogeny, variability and PCR-detection of toxigenic fungi and their toxins. Notable amongst these are a review of the phylogeny and diagnosis of Fusarium species and a new system for identifying Fusarium species based on a DNA sequence database. Other papers describe the diversity and analysis of ochratoxigenic Aspergilli and Penicillia. This ...

  • Epidemiology of Mycotoxin Producing Fungi

    Epidemiology of Mycotoxin Producing Fungi

    The accumulation of mycotoxins in plants and plant products represents a major threat to human health. Toxins accumulate in plants following infection by species of Fusarium, Aspergillus and Penicillium. It has been estimated that one quarter of the world's food crops, including many basic foods, are affected by mycotoxin-producing fungi. The toxins are responsible for many different toxicities in humans and animals, including the induction of ...
