Organisation Profile

Eco-physiology, genomics, transcriptomics and metabolism of wood-decaying forest fungi are our topics of research. By the aid of modern omics, we aim at opening fungal metabolism, interactions and gene expression upon wood-decay and waste lignocellulose bioconversions to biofuels and bioproducts.
