"Will be very useful to many students and bench scientists wishing to expand their repertoire of practical skills in medical mycology." (Microbiology Today, March 2008)
Medical Mycology is a useful guide for molecular, immunological, and cytological techniques that will provide useful to researchers and students alike. (The Yale Journal of Biology and Medicine, June 2007)
- Comprehensive introduction to key techniques critical to the study of medical mycology
- Contributions from both researchers and clinicians working in the field of medical mycology
