Plant biomass is currently the main renewable energy source with potential biotechnological applications. Cellulose representing the major structural polysaccharide of plants and the most abundant component of the plant cell walls. Cellulosic substrates can be used for the production of free glucose residues and for the generation of high value-added bioproducts such as bioethanol and o...
The conversion of sugar derived from plant biomass degradation via enzymatic hydrolysis for biofuels production is a challenge. Therefore, the search for new microorganisms and enzymes that can increase the efficiency of the saccharification of cellulosic substrates remains an important and high-priority area of study. Using a rational approach, comparing RNA-Seq and structural genomics...
Current efforts to unravel the secrets of efficient fungal biomass conversion are hampered by the bottleneck that exists in our limited knowledge about the molecular interaction networks between the proteins/enzymes and the plant cell wall components. On the other hand, the majority of the studies, with few exceptions, use artificial substrates, focusing particularly on a specific enzym...
