This detailed volume aims to elucidate the molecular mechanisms that underlie antifungal resistance. The book highlights methods to identify and characterize antifungal activity, to define and characterize strains with altered responses to antifungal drugs, to investigate the genetic and molecular mechanisms of these alterations of antifungal drug susceptibility, and, finally, to approach the study of these processes in animal models of fungal infection. Written for the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step and readily reproducible laboratory protocols, as well as tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.
Authoritative and practical, Antifungal Drug Resistance: Methods and Protocols serves as an ideal resource for the field and a guide for investigators to study this important translational aspect of fungal biology.
