  • fungi, and cellulase and hemicellulase production;
  • fungi and enzyme mixture, high productivity/catalytic efficiency;
  • fungi in enzyme as free enzymes into medium, facilitating recovery;
  • fungal producer strains;
  • cellulose hydrolytic performance, Penicillium species and T. reesei;
  • Myceliophthora thermophila, T. reesei alternatives as cellulase producers;
  • strain improvement with enzyme-producing fungi, by classical mutagenesis;
  • flipper (FLP/FRT) recombination, alternatives to Cre/loxP
