  1. 1. Systems Biology of the Secondary Metabolism in Filamentous Fungi

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Jens Christian Froslev Nielsen; [2018]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; genomics; systems biology; secondary metabolites; antibiotics; Next-generation sequencing; secondary metabolism; filamentous fungi; cell factories; Penicillium;

    Abstract : Filamentous fungi constitute a rich reservoir of pharmaceutically relevant bioactive small molecules. These compounds, commonly referred to as secondary metabolites, are widely used as antibiotics for the treatment of microbial infections, but also as other pharmaceuticals such as immunosuppressors, cholesterol lowering agents and anticancer drugs.

  2. 2. Fungi-based biorefinery model for food industry waste progress toward a circular economy

    University dissertation from Borås : Högskolan i Borås

    Author : Pedro Souza Filho; Högskolan i Borås.; [2018]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; filamentous fungi; circular economy; biorefinery; food industry; fungal biomass; bioplastic; resource recovery; Resource Recovery; Resursåtervinning;

    Abstract : The food industry, one of the most important industrial sectors worldwide, generates large amounts of biodegradable waste with high organic load. In recent years, the traditional management methods to treat this waste (e.g., landfilling) have been considered not suitable because they do not exploit the potential of the waste material.

  3. 3. Analysis of Secondary Metabolites from Aspergillus fumigatus and Penicillium nalgiovense Antimicrobial Compounds from Filamentous Fungi Isolated from Extreme Environments

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Stefan Svahn; Uppsala universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Aspergillus fumigatus; Penicillium nalgiovense; secondary metabolites; invasive aspergillosis; elicitation; gliotoxin; bis methyl gliotoxin; amphotericin B; Pharmacognosy; Farmakognosi;

    Abstract : This thesis describes the cultivation and extraction of filamentous fungi isolated from extreme environments in the search for new antibiotic compounds. Filamentous fungi are a rich source of medicines including antibiotics, and it is believed that many currently unknown fungal species and bioactive fungal metabolites remain to be discovered.

  4. 4. Integration of filamentous fungi in ethanol dry-mill biorefinery

    University dissertation from Borås : Högskolan i Borås

    Author : Jorge Ferreira; Högskolan i Borås.; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; airlift bioreactors; ascomycetes; biomass; bubble column; ethanol; feed; Neurospora intermedia; thin stillage; zygomycetes; Resource Recovery; Resursåtervinning;

    Abstract : The industrial production of bioethanol as a replacement to gasoline is well-established worldwide, using starch- or sugar-rich substrates. Additionally, the bioethanol plants produce animal feeds derived from fermentation leftovers. The biorefinery character of bioethanol plants can be enhanced via process diversification. READ MORE

  5. 5. Integration of first and second generation bioethanol processes using edible filamentous fungus Neurospora intermedia

    University dissertation from Borås : Högskolan i Borås

    Author : Ramkumar B Nair; Högskolan i Borås.; [2017]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; First- and second-generation bioethanol; Integration; Neurospora intermedia; Edible filamentous fungi; Wheat straw; Wheat bran; Whole stillage fiber; MEDICINE Chemistry Biochemistry; MEDICIN Kemi Biokemi;

    Abstract : Establishing a commercial, lignocellulose-based, second-generation ethanol process has received several decades of attention by both researchers and industry. However, a fully economically viable process still remains a long-term goal. READ MORE
