The Genozymes project (Genozymes for Bioproducts and Bioprocesses Development) is funded primarily by Genome Canada, Genome Quebec, and Genome Alberta. The project involves various academic and industrial partners listed below.

Fungal enzymes are already being used widely in industry. They are versatile and can be deployed in challenging environments. Genozymes uses 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 examines 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 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).
