Mycopathologia is an international journal devoted to the study of the role of fungi in disease and biodeterioration. As such the journal covers a range of topics that is unique in breadth and depth including original articles and critical reviews in the fields of medical and veterinary mycology plant mycology (crop protection) mycotoxicosis mycetism entomopathogenic fungi environmental aeromycology and applied industrial mycology. The journal also contains selected papers on systematics taxonomy and the basic as well as molecular biology of fungi involved in any of the above fields. In addition to full-length reports of original research Mycopathologia publishes short communications and interesting case reports together with literature reviews. Letters to the editor on topics of interest to mycologists are also published. These may include debates disagreements or further commentary on published works or opinions expressed in this or other publications. Molecular mycology: Current mycological studies at the forefront of technology focus on the molecular level of life. These studies involve the diagnosis treatment immunology ecology and epidemiology of mycotic diseases. The development of molecular biology has resulted in unprecedented knowledge of biological mechanisms new scientific techniques new tools and a new breed of mycologists. Therefore a proper technical evaluation of these papers requires an editor and referees with specific expertise in this area. To achieve this competent peer review a new section molecular mycology has been created for the journal. We are fortunate to have Joseph Heitman MD PhD of Duke University Medical Center as the coordinating editor for this section. If you prefer your manuscript to be considered for this section of the journal submit your manuscript to the editorial office with a request to forward it to the Coordinating editor for molecular mycology.
