New research reveals that anaerobic fungi have the ability to deconstruct lignin, a difficult-to-break-down plant material. This discovery could revolutionize bioenergy production, leading to a more sustainable and efficient future.
Featured genus, Paucimyces!
Paucimyces is a polycentric anaerobic fungal genus isolated from the feces of a wild blackbuck. The genus is not commonly found in nature and has primarily been identified in sheep samples. The distinguishing feature of this genus is polynucleated filamentous rhizomycelium.
