Approaches to Enhance Industrial Production of Fungal Cellulases Book Review:

Cellulase is a key enzyme of industrial interest and plays a crucial role in the hydrolysis of cellulose, a prime component of plant cell walls. Cellulase covers a broad area in the global market of industrially important enzymes and it is considered as the third largest industrial enzyme globally. Additionally, cellulase contributes about 20% of the total enzyme market globally because of its massive demand in various industries such as in biofuel production, pulp, paper, textile, food, and beverages, as well as in detergent industries. Among these, the demand of cellulase may become frequently selected in the commercial production of biofuels in the future and thus will further increase demand of cellulase in the biofuel industry. Because biofuel production is still not realized in a cost-effective, practical implementation due to its high cost (the higher cost of biofuels is due to higher production costs of enzymes), there is a need to introduce these types of approaches, which will help to lower the cost of enzyme production for developing overall economic biofuel production.

Metaproteogenomics guided Enzyme Discovery Book Review:

Industrial biotechnology is a large and growing industry as it is part of establishing a “greener” and more sustainable bioeconomy-based society. Using enzymes as biocatalysts is a viable alternative to chemicals and energy intense industrial processes and is en route to a more sustainable industry. Enzymes have been used in different areas for ages and are today used in many industrial processes such as biofuels production, food industry, tanning, chemical synthesis, pharmaceuticals etc. Enzymes are today a billion-dollar industry in itself and the demand for novel catalysts for various present and future processes of renewable resources are high and perfectly in line with converting to a more sustainable society. Most enzymes used in industry today have been identified from isolated and pure cultured microorganisms with identified desirable traits and enzymatic capacities. However, it is known that less than 1% of all microorganisms can be can be obtained in pure cultures. Thus, if we were to rely solely on pure culturing, this would leave the 99% of the microorganisms that constitutes the “microbial dark matter” uninvestigated for their potential in coding for and producing valuable novel enzymes. Therefore, to investigate these “unculturable” microorganisms for novel and valuable enzymes, pure-culture independent methods are needed. During the last two decades there has been a fast and extensive development in techniques and methods applicable for this purpose. Especially important has been the advancements made in mass spectrometry for protein identification and next generation sequencing of DNA. With these technical developments new research fields of proteomics and genomics have been developed, by which the complete protein complement of cells (the proteome) and all genes (the genome) of organisms can be investigated. When these techniques are applied to microbial communities these fields of research are known as meta-proteomics and meta-genomics. However, when applied to complex microbial communities, difficulties different from those encountered in their original usage for analysis of single multicellular organisms or cell linages arises, and when used independently both methods have their own limitations and bottlenecks. In addition, both metaproteomics and metagenomics are largely non-targeting techniques. Thus, if the purpose is still to - somewhat contradictory – use these non-targeting methods for targeted identification of novel enzymes with certain desired activities and properties from within microbial communities, special measures need to be taken. The work presented in this thesis describes the development of a method that combines metaproteomics and metagenomics (i.e. metaproteogenomics) for the targeted discovery of novel enzymes with desired activities, and their correct coding genes, from within microbial communities. Thus, what is described is a method that can be used to circumvent the pure-culturing problem so that a much larger fraction of the microbial dark matter can be specifically investigated for the identification of novel valuable enzymes.

Grand Challenges in Fungal Biotechnology Book Review:

This volume provides a comprehensive overview of the major applications and potential of fungal biotechnology. The respective chapters report on the latest advances and opportunities in each topic area, proposing new and sustainable solutions to some of the major challenges faced by modern society. Aimed at researchers and biotechnologists in academia and industry, it represents essential reading for anyone interested in fungal biotechnology, as well as those working within the broader area of microbial biotechnology. Written in an accessible language, the book also offers a valuable reference resource for decision-makers in government and at non-governmental organizations who are involved in the development of cleaner technologies and the global bioeconomy. The 21st century is characterized by a number of critical challenges in terms of human health, developing a sustainable bioeconomy, facilitating agricultural production, and establishing practices that support a cleaner environment. While there are chemical solutions to some of these challenges, developing bio-based approaches is becoming increasingly important. Filamentous fungi, ‘the forgotten kingdom,’ are a group of unique organisms whose full potential has yet to be revealed. Some key properties, such as their exceptional capacity to secrete proteins into the external environment, have already been successfully harnessed for the production of industrial enzymes and cellulosic biofuels. Many further aspects discussed here –such as feeding the hungry with fungal protein, and the potential applications of the various small molecules produced by fungi –warrant further exploration. In turn, the book covers the use of fungal cell factories to produce foreign molecules, e.g. for therapeutics. Strategies including molecular approaches to strain improvement, and recent advances in high-throughput technologies, which are key to finding better products and producers, are also addressed. Lastly, the book discusses the advent of synthetic biology, which is destined to greatly expand the scope of fungal biotechnology.
