Featured article: Supplementation in mushroom crops and its impact on yield and quality

Mushroom supplementation is an agronomic process which consists of the application of nutritional amendments to the substrates employed for mushroom cultivation. It has been shown that mushroom crop yield and quality can be significantly improved with the application of nitrogen and carbohydrate rich supplements, however new research lends support to the potential efficacy of hitherto underutilised supplemental nutrients. In this mini-review Carrasco et al. compile recent advances in the supplementation of substrates employed in mushroom cultivation and aim to shed light on some agronomical aspects regarding this expanding crop.

Aims and scope

AMB Express is a high quality journal that brings together research in the area of Applied and Industrial Microbiology with a particular interest in 'White Biotechnology' and 'Red Biotechnology'. The emphasis is on processes employing microorganisms, eukaryotic cell cultures or enzymes for the biosynthesis, transformation and degradation of compounds. This includes fine and bulk chemicals, polymeric compounds and enzymes or other proteins. Downstream processes are also considered. Integrated processes combining biochemical and chemical processes are also published.

Editor's quote

The high quality journal, AMB Express, was founded as a fully open access sister journal to Applied Microbiology and Technology about 6 years ago. Since then, the journal has become well-known to authors and reviewers whilst steadily growing. This year, we already have more than 400,000 downloads. Meanwhile, AMB Express has had several achievements: following indexing by ISI, it has since received two consecutive Thomson Reuters Science Citation Index Impact Factors. These Impact Factors were unexpectedly high, and we are very confident that they will continue to grow. What is, however, most important is that not only the number of manuscripts is increasing, but also their volume and the quality of their contents. The editors of AMB Express, the managing editor and I, will ensure that the journal’s performance and the quality of the published papers will continue to improve and that more excellent and highly cited papers will be published in AMB Express. Papers devoted to ‘Industrial Microbiology’ and with a particular interest in ‘White and Red Biotechnology’ are highly welcome; this also includes short papers in which important achievements are communicated.
