Follow the new research article published on 'Ethanol production from lignocellulosic biomass by co-fermentation with Pecoramyces sp. F1 and Zymomonas mobilis ATCC 31821 in an integrated process' from the lab of Prof Yanfen Cheng.
As of January 2022, there will be a monthly post listing any newly published scientific articles relating to anaerobic fungi. To kick things off, with this first post we have 11 papers to share with you which have been published since the last quarter of 2021 until now: Voigt, K.; James, T.Y.; Kirk, P.M.; Santiago, … Continue reading Publications – new monthly updates
Another anaerobic fungal genus has been described, bringing the total number now up to 20. Paucimyces has monoflagellated zoospores and polycentric thalli with highly branched nucleated filamentous rhizomycelium, a growth pattern encountered in a minority of described anaerobic fungal genera so far. The type species of the genus is Paucimyces polynucleatus. Read more about this … Continue reading Paucimyces – 20th anaerobic fungal genus!
We are very happy to share with you details of a paper that was recently published: "Aestipascuomyces dupliciliberans gen. nov, sp. nov., the First Cultured Representative of the Uncultured SK4 Clade from Aoudad Sheep and Alpaca". This paper describes the characterization of the 19th anaerobic fungal genus, which was independently isolated by two different research … Continue reading 19th genus now published
We are delighted to share with you details of a paper that was published at the end of last week entitled "Seven new Neocallimastigomycota genera from wild, zoo-housed, and domesticated herbivores greatly expand the taxonomic diversity of the phylum". This substantial collaborative piece of work brings the number of described genera from 11 up to … Continue reading Seven new genera!!!
We would like to bring to your attention a new Frontiers in Microbiology research topic on: Advances in the understanding of the commensal eukaryota and viruses of the herbivore gut. The topic is also a tribute to the tremendous contributions of the late Professor Burk Dehority and Professor Colin Orpin to the field of herbivore gut microbiology. The topic is open to … Continue reading Frontiers: Herbivore gut eukaryota and viruses
The new genus, Liebetanzomyces, was isolated using an extended cultivation approach. It's type strain is called L. polymorphus due to the pleomorphism it displays in terms of its sporangial and rhizoidal structures. The genus is named after Erwin Liebetanz, as he was the first to document the flagellated zoospores of anaerobic fungi in 1910. The paper … Continue reading Liebetanzomyces – 11th genus described
The previously uncultured AL6 clade has now been isolated and named Feramyces. More details can be found in the associated published article, which you can find here.
A comparative genomics approach has been used to provide new insights into cellulose degradation by anaerobic fungi. This substantial piece of work has just been published in Nature Microbiology, further information can be found here: press release and paper.
A new anaerobic fungal genus - Pecoramyces - has just been described, and the corresponding paper can be found here. The type strain, Pecoramyces ruminantium C1A (formerly known as Orpinomyces sp. C1A), has already had its genome and transcriptome sequenced.
