Overview

Enzyme Tracking platform

The bioinformatics group has developed a platform for tracking the cloning and expression of target genes/proteins from various fungal species for several different fungal genomics projects.

Enzyme Literature platform

The group is developing a data warehouse of curated information about characterized fungal enzymes from the scientific literature. We are building a database of the genes and genomes of various species of fungi, as well as the enzyme families and the properties and applications for those proteins.
