Dissecting the Pathway to Hyper-Secretion of Lignocellulolytic Enzymes in Filamenous Fungi

Filamentous fungi degrade most plant material, especially lignin and cellulose. Our ultimate goal is to understand the genomic and secretory pathway remodeling that occurs when N. crassa deconstructs plant cell walls/cellulose in order to use rational design to create these industrial strains that secrete high amounts of those enzymes, cellulases and hemicellulases.
