The Genomzymes project, funded primarily by Genome Canada, uses functional genomic and ancillary approaches to identify and characterize fungal enzymes for industrial and environmental applications. Fungal enzymes are already being used widely in industry. They are versatile and can be deployed in challenging environments. The Genozymes project examines evolutionarily diverse fungal species chosen for their ability to grow at environmental extremes and their known ability in biodegradation, bioremediation and biocatalysis. Research of the project includes: genome sequencing and annotation; transcriptome and exo-proteome analyses; protein production; enzyme characterization; directed evolution; protein structure determination; saccharification of lignocellulose; pulp and paper applications; cattle feed supplement; and related environmental, ethical, economic, legal, and social issues (GE3LS).

Overview

The Genozymes project (Genozymes for Bioproducts and Bioprocesses Development) started ran from October 2009 to September 2014. It was funded primarily by Genome Canada, Genome Quebec, and Genome Alberta. The project involved various academic and industrial partners listed below.

Fungal enzymes are being used widely in industry. They are versatile and can be deployed in challenging environments. Genozymes used functional genomic and ancillary approaches to identify and characterize fungal enzymes for industrial and environmental applications including the conversion of woody biomass to biofuels and other bioproducts. The Genozymes project examined evolutionarily diverse fungal species chosen for their ability to grow at environmental extremes and their known ability in biodegradation, bioremediation and biocatalysis.

Research componants of the project included: genome sequencing and annotation; transcriptome and exo-proteome analyses; protein production; enzyme characterization; directed evolution; protein structure determination; saccharification of lignocellulose; pulp and paper applications; cattle feed supplement; and related environmental, ethical, economic, legal, and social issues (GE3LS).
