Functional genomics and proteomics of trichoderma antagonist strains for industry and agriculture

Objective

Project aims to identify genes & gene products from Trichoderma antagonists with biotechnology value, to assess their industrial potential, and to exploit and commercialise them in concert with EU biotechnology strategy. The project will involve extensive research into the Trichoderma genome, but is not a sequencing programme. Instead, it will develop integrated functional genomic and proteomic approaches and innovative use of bioinformatics, leading to rapid exploitation of genes and gene products and their transformation into industrial processes. Technologies achieved will have applications in a range of agro-industrial, environmental and medical activities, including innovations in agricultural pest and pathogen management leading to reduction in use of unsustainable chemical control measures, novel antibiotics, and enzymes with industrial uses involving processing of plant-derived matter, including animal feeds, composting and bioremediation.
