CABI Book Chapter

Trichoderma: biology and applications.

Book cover for Trichoderma: biology and applications.


This book provides an update on the advances in Trichoderma research, covering most of the aspects related to the biology, genetics, genomics and applications of Trichoderma species. An overview of the importance of Trichoderma spp. in agriculture, industry and medicine (chapter 1) is presented. The remaining articles are broadly classified under the headings taxonomy and physiology (chapters 2-7)...


Chapter 12 (Page no: 209)

The use of metabolomic approaches to study Trichoderma-plant interactions.

This chapter presents the metabolic approaches to the study of the interaction of Trichoderma spp. with plants, including gas chromatography, liquid chromatography, capillary electrophoresis, mass spectrometry, nuclear magnetic resonance, and ultraviolet light spectroscopy. The use of transcriptomic, proteomic and metabolomic information to study the metabolic pathways involved in Trichoderma-plant interactions is described.
