Designing and improving health and food related production processes using filamentous fungal cell factories

Objective

The main goal of the Eurofung project is to design and to improve health and food related fungal production processes. Three different product categories of industrial interest are investigated
1) Heterologous proteins of medical importance (cytokines, antibodies and allergens)
2) Enzymes used in food and feed applications
3) Novel non ribosomat peptide antibiotics. These processes will be improved by solving specific problems associated with each of them and generic problems associated with fungal behaviour in fermenters. The project requires a multidisciplinary approach in which solid process engineering and advanced mathematical modelling are complemented by state of the art biochemistry and molecular genetics to construct fungal strains of high productivity.
