Abstract

Filamentous fungi have an established and central role in the industrial production of enzymes for various applications ranging from animal feed manufacture to pulp bleaching. Filamentous fungi are also of high interest as efficient expression hosts for a wide range of valuable gene products originating from other organisms. Progress aiming at reaching the full potential of filamentous fungi as production hosts depends on better understanding of gene regulation, protein modification, function of the secretory pathway, genetic and physiological aspects related to product fermentation and studies into functional genomics.
