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.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mr. Vice Matušan

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
