Fungi have been important in both ancient and modern biotechnological processes. Processes and products that utilize fungi include baking, brewing, and the production of antibiotics, alcohols, enzymes, organic acids, and numerous pharmaceuticals. The advent of recombinant DNA technology and large scale genomics analysis has placed yeasts and filamentous fungi in the forefront of contemporary commercial applications. The term 'mycotechnology' is introduced here to describe the enormous impact of fungi on biotechnology.
