The Fungal Physiology and Metabolism specialty section of Frontiers in Fungal Biology publishes high-quality fundamental and applied research across all aspects related to fungal physiology, metabolism, from molecules to systems biology approaches, and including evolutionary and population biology aspects. This area of research in fungi has a long history and is experiencing a renaissance due to the advent of high throughput functional and sequencing technologies and comparative genomics between and within species.
This interdisciplinary section solicits articles describing significant advances in areas including, but not limited to:
· Genetic and biochemical approaches to assessing protein/gene function as it relates to physiology and metabolism
· Genetic and biochemical approaches to define regulatory aspects of physiology and metabolism
· Transcriptional, translational and epigenetic control of metabolic functions
· Systems biology approaches to define regulatory networks that affect nutrient acquisition, metabolism and physiology
· Comparative interspecies and/or intraspecies genomics to assess adaptation of fungal physiology and metabolism across time or environments
· Physiology and metabolism of fungi as it relates to interactions with plants, animals and other microbes, in symbiotic and antagonistic relationships
· Population genetics and population genomics that investigate aspects of nutrient acquisition, physiology and metabolism
The Fungal Physiology and Metabolism section will contribute to novel insights into fungal biology from molecules to a holistic view of metabolism and physiology at an organismal level and in interactions with other organisms.We welcome studies focused on any lineage of the broad diversity of fungi.
