Current members of the Fungal Genetics and Biotechnology group
I am the principal investigator and Academy of Finland Research Fellow in the Fungal Genetics and Biotechnology group. My research interests include functional genomics of plant biomass degrading asco- and basidiomycete fungi and enzymatic conversion of plant biomass.
My research focuses on plant polysaccharide degradation related regulators of basidiomycete fungi.
Dr. Jaana Kuuskeri
My research is focused on characterization of novel esterases and other plant biomass modifying enzymes.link to my tuhat pages
Docent Mika Kähkönen
My research was focused on the characterization and production of laccases. My studies also include dye decolorization by fungi and the impact of nano-metals to fungal enzyme production. link to my tuhat pages
Dr. Sadegh Mansouri
I graduated in October 2017. I focused on plant biomass modifying enzymes of ascomycete fungi in my PhD thesis. link to my tuhat pages
Dr. Johanna Karppi (Rytioja)
I studied enzymatic plant cell wall degradation by the white rot fungus Dichomitus squalens. I graduated 2016. link to my tuhat pages
BSc. Harri Hinkka
My research was focused on the characterization of fungal feryloyl and glucuronoyl esterases. link to my tuhat pages
