Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

With a growing population, access to a safe food supply and a safe environment for all consumers will continue to be a global priority.  In recent years, the world has experienced an increase in mycotoxin contamination of grains due to climatic and agronomic changes that encourage fungal growth during cultivation. Many of the molds that are plant pathogens produce trichothecene mycotoxins, which are known to cause serious human and animal toxicoses.  Development of methods to detect and reduce trichothecenes in the field, as well as the food supply, is based upon basic research in a number of areas. This special issue of Toxins is devoted to recent advances in trichothecene research. Topics of interest include the biosynthesis of trichothecenes in organisms such as Fusarium graminearum, F. sporotrichioides, F. culmorum, and other related species and genera such as Trichoderma, Trichothecium and Stachybotrys; genetics and biology of the fungi producing trichothecenes, including phytotoxicity and animal toxicology; detection methods for trichothecenes; phylogenetic studies of trichothecene-producing fungi; and other pertinent topics.
