Cellular and molecular biology of non-conventional microbial fungi (Foreword)

Enrique Herrero, Rafael Santandreu


Microbiology has been and still is a rich source of knowledge about the cellular and molecular biology of model organisms. Although the concept of model organism has arisen some criticisms, it is generally accepted that the feasibility of biochemical, genetic and other kinds of biological tools to be employed on some model organisms allows to carry out on them a wide spectrum of experimental approaches. Those approaches will lead to deep knowledge on their biology and to rise new possibilities to study the biology of other organisms for which no so accessible tools exist.
