Overview

The Genozymes 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).
