Fungi, as eukaryotic organisms, make a plethora of metabolites. One of the most eye catching compounds was the discovery of penicillin which changed the way humans have coped with many infectious diseases over the past 80 years. On the other hand, fungi also make compounds that are found in foods and feeds that are toxic. Also, many plant pathogens utilize toxins to be further the course of disease progression. Basically, this issue is devoted to all aspects of fungal metabolites from their discovery and their structural elucidation, to their utility and the genetic processes controlling their production. Likewise, the editors are interested in receiving papers that provide novelty and original insights and discoveries related to all aspects of fungal metabolites. If your paper is well prepared and approved for publication, you may be eligible for discounts for your publication.
