Starting from the biosynthesis of fatty acids with normal and unusual cyclic alkyl starting unit structures, a large variety of compounds derived from fatty acids which have significant biological activities are described in the first part of this volume. Phospholipids, platelet activating factor, lipochitins, algal pheromones and butyrolactones are also topics covered in this volume from their fundamental and interesting biological activities. The second part covers the polyketide biosynthesis of antibiotics of Actinomycetes and also of fungal metabolites. Chapters are selected according to the originality and timeliness. They describe gene cloning, functional expressions and reaction mechanisms of aromatic and macrolide antibiotics, gene cloning and reactio
