Book Description:
This book offers a collection of articles on binomial chitin/chitinase from authors who have all personally contributed to the development and increased knowledge of this topic. The book will represents a milestone for future researchers by taking into account the known archaic function of chitinases and the new description of chitin and chitinases roles in innate immunity. This recently discovered role has likely been vital in the process of genetic selection.
