Organization profile

Organisation Profile

The Fungal Genetics and Biotechnology group studies plant biomass modifying enzymes from asco- and basidiomycete fungi. The research focuses on various aspects of fungal molecular biology and enzymology. Lignocellulose, particularly lignin, degradation has been our the long term interest. Our research has provided strong international contribution in the field of fungal and enzymatic degradation of lignin and lignocellulose.
