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. 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 Rytioja
I studied enzymatic plant cell wall degradation by the white rot fungus Dichomitus squalens. I graduated 2016. link to my tuhat pages
