The Fungal Biotechnology specialty section in the journal Frontiers in Fungal Biology publishes high-quality fundamental and applied research across all aspects of fungal biotechnology, particularly research that enables the development of fungi for industrial uses. Fungal biotechnology plays an integral role in the bioeconomy, the knowledge-based production and use of biological resources to provide products, processes and services in all economic sectors within the frame of a sustainable economic system.
Thus, this interdisciplinary forum solicits significant advances in areas including, but not limited to:
· Production of biofuels, biomaterials and bioproducts
· Enzymatic deconstruction of plant biomass
· Novel metabolic pathways
· Genome engineering of fungi
· Synthetic biology in fungal chassis
· Control of fungal growth morphology
· Engineering of secondary metabolite biosynthetic pathways
· Fungal bioprocess development
· Genome sequencing of industrially relevant fungal species and strains
All studies must contribute novel insights and further our understanding of the fungal kingdom from a biotechnological perspective.
Reports dealing solely with technoeconomic analysis or process development parameters do not fall within the scope of this section and should be submitted to more specialized journals. Aspects relating to fungal genomics and systematics outside of biotechnologically relevant fungi may be more appropriate for other sections of Frontiers in Fungal Biology.
