Biosynthesis of Hydrocarbons and Volatile Organic Compounds by Fungi: Bioengineering Potential

Daniel J Spakowicz et al. Appl Microbiol Biotechnol.

Abstract

Recent advances in the biological production of fuels have relied on the optimization of pathways involving genes from diverse organisms. Several recent articles have highlighted the potential to expand the pool of useful genes by looking to filamentous fungi. This review highlights the enzymes and organisms used for the production of a variety of fuel types and commodity chemicals with a focus on the usefulness and promise of those from filamentous fungi.
