Meet Yuqi Li, winner of the best poster award at the IAFC2022. His poster was titled “Mining of novel GH48 cellulases derived from anaerobic fungi Pecoramyces sp. F1 by bidirectional induction”. Congratulations, Yuqi! More information on IAFC2022 can be found on the AFN homepage.
Joblinomyces was identified in 2020 as a part of a collaborative isolation effort that targeted a wide range of wild, domesticated and zoo-housed herbivores (Hanafy et al, 2020). The genus name, Joblinomyces, was given to honor Prof. Keith N. Joblin for his great contribution to the field of anaerobic fungi. The type species is called J. apicalis, refering … Continue reading Featured genus: Joblinomyces

Ghazallomyces (Ghazalla, Arabic word for deer) was first isolated from the feces of a wild Axis deer in 2020 by Hanafy et al. Like Neocallimastix and Feramyces, the genus Ghazallomyces has a monocentric thallus and polyflagellated zoospores. The type species is called G. constrictus, highlighting the distinct constricted necks for the sporangia produced by this fungus. Please find more information of genus Ghazhallomyces … Continue reading Featured genus: Ghazhallomyces

An interesting research article published by Michelle O'Malley's group reveals the secrets of enhanced enzyme activity and the growth rate of anaerobic fungi.
The genus name, Capellomyces, is derived from the Latin word for goat as this is the animal the genus was first isolated from. This genus was first described in 2020 as part of a collaborative study that documented two Capellomyces species (Hanafy et al, 2020a). The main morphological characteristics of Capellomyces are common to several different anaerobic fungal genera: monocentric … Continue reading Featured genus: Capellomyces
