Being plant pathologist, if we set down the behind philosophy and importance to write this practical manual in detail, then this preface would be too long. Hence, it would suffice to say that the need to write this manual relates to a course, which is taught to beginners of the science of plant pathology. Therefore, this has attempted to provide them concise information in a well practical way.

Conventional fungal taxonomy has become powerful and more authenticated by the aid of molecular biology and the integration of computational biology as well. No doubt, by the invention of molecular tools, new ways are open to exploring fungus community. This manual gives the basic practical insight to the students and researchers who are associated directly or indirectly to the field of fungal molecular taxonomy.

Fungi include a vast diversity of microbes that are abundantly present on earth. Phytopathogenic fungi are the disease-causing agents in plants and aggravating the substantial yield losses around the globe. Fungal pathogens are among the microbes which infecting a broad host range of plants. They may be obligate parasites (require a living host for their growth and reproduction) or may be saprophytic (do not have the requirement of a living host for their growth and reproduction). Fungal isolates of different species are differentiated based on their morphology, pathogenesis, host plants, and potential to produce stable vegetative heterokaryons by the fusion of genetically diverse strains of fungi.
