From the book reviews:

"The book 'Host-fungus Interactions' assembles methods and protocols for studying gene disruption, modulation of gene expression, host and fungal responses to infection and several model systems to analyze the host-fungus interactions. The book comprises of 8 parts with 42 chapters and an index at the end of the book. ... A useful tool for medical microbiologists, immunologists, geneticists, biotechnologists and students studying pharmacology and pathogenicity testing." (Melvina D'souza and Kevin D. Hyde, Fungal Diversity, December, 2014)
