Dr. Scott E. Baker, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory

"Fuels, Products and Filamentous Ffingi "

Filamentous fungi are important microbes in industry. In particular, Aspergillus niger, is a model bioprocess organism involved in both enzyme and organic acid production. The US Department of Energy Joint Genome Institute in collaboration with the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, Technical University of Denmark, and many other institutions, has sequenced the genome of A. niger ATCC strain 1015, a historical wildtype citric acid producing strain. A second protein producing strain of A. niger, CBS 513.88, was sequenced by a Dutch company, DSM. A comparison of the genome and transcriptome of these two strains has led to interesting insights into differences between organic acid and enzyme production. Other ongoing research by the PNNL Fungal Biotechnology Team will be highlighted as well
