The Fungal Secondary Metabolites and Mycotoxins specialty section of Frontiers in Fungal Biology publishes high-quality fundamental and applied research across disciplines focusing on the biosynthesis, regulation, and accumulation of fungal secondary metabolites and mycotoxins, their evolution, biological activity, and impact on the natural history of filamentous fungi. As genomic and metabolomic resources for filamentous fungi have become increasingly available, knowledge of the biosynthetic potential of fungi has expanded widely. We seek contributions in this area ranging from individual molecules to systems biology approaches to understanding the fungal secondary metabolome including population, genomic, developmental, and evolutionary aspects.
This interdisciplinary section solicits articles describing significant advances in areas including, but not limited to:
· Genetic and biochemical approaches to assessing gene/protein function as it relates to secondary metabolism.
· Genetic and biochemical approaches to understand regulatory aspects of secondary metabolism.
· Transcriptional, translational, and epigenetic control of secondary metabolism.
· Systems biology approaches to define regulatory networks that affect secondary metabolism and their integration with primary metabolism, nutrient acquisition, and physiology.
· Comparative interspecies and/or intraspecies genomics to understand secondary metabolome evolution and adaptation to different environments and niches.
· Fungal secondary metabolites and their biological role in microbial, plant, and animal interactions.
· Population genetics and population genomics of secondary metabolite gene clusters.
· Cytological compartmentalization of secondary metabolic pathways and their cellular integration with primary metabolism.
· Discovery and biological activity of novel mycotoxins and their biosynthesis in fungi.
Purely descriptive cataloging of fungal metabolites or in vitro chemical synthesis of metabolites do not generally fall within the scope of this journal.
