Effects of early-life rumen microbiota modulation!
Check out this follow-up study that examined the long-term effects of early-life rumen microbiota modulation on four pairs of identical twin calves for production parameters and methane emissions.
Enhanced methane production using an anaerobic microbial cocktail!
This study shows efficient lignocellulose hydrolysis and enhanced methane production from untreated rice straw using a defined consortium of anaerobic fungi, bacteria and methanogens.
New genus Aestipascuomyces!
Aestipascuomyces was the 19th anaerobic fungal genus described by two different research teams. The genus name is derived from the Latin words for summer (aestas) and pasture, indicating the apparent enrichment from the feces of barbary sheep and alpaca grazing on summer pasture.
New research article on feruloyl esterase characterization!
Check out this research article on characterization of feruloyl esterase from the anaerobic fungus Pecoramyces and its synergistic effect in biomass degradation.
Research article on butyrate and butanol production from lignocellulose!
This research article demonstrates a proof of concept for biobutanol and bio-butyrate production from using an anaerobic fungal-bacterial co-culture.
Recently published review article here!
Check out this interesting review article on the role of fungal direct-fed microbials and anaerobic fungi in ruminants and their metabolic pathways of plant fibre decomposition and rumen fermentation processes.
Featured genus, Tahromyces!
The genus Tahromyces was isolated from the feces of Nilgiri Tahr, a mountain goat indigenous to India. Tahromyces is a monocentric fungus with a filamentous rhizoidal system and monoflagellated zoospores. Follow the link for more details https://anaerobicfungi.org/tahromyces/.
Publication on growth media and diversity of Neocallimastigomycetes!
Are you still using a rumen fluid medium to isolate anaerobic fungi? Read this paper from the HiPoAF team for the details on the effect of growth media on the enrichment of anaerobic fungi from non-rumen and rumen habitats.
Research article on preservation protocols for anaerobic fungi!
No time to die! comparative study on preservation protocols tested in three different laboratories, on three morphologically distinct isolates of anaerobic fungi by the HiPoAF team.
