About the book
Fungi are important microbial agents which can lead to different infections in patients. Therefore, recognition of fungal actions of pathogenicity and virulencity is necessary for prevention, control and treatment of mycoses. Today, there is a wide range of antifungal drugs which can be administered to patients with different types of mycoses. The use of suitable antifungal drugs may lead to a definite treatment. Therefore, knowing the fungal pathogenome, metabolome, transcriptome and virulome could help us apply appropriate antifungal agents. Simultaneously, the knowledge about antifungal drugs mechanisms of actions and mechanisms of resistance are invaluable means for a definite treatment. The progression of computational drug designing and bioinformatics enables us to design and produce more effective antifungal drugs with less side effects. In this book, we will discuss different aspects of fungi, mycoses and antifungal drugs.
