Genome sequencing and analysis of the versatile cell factory Aspergillus niger CBS 513.88
The filamentous fungus Aspergillus niger is widely exploited by the fermentation industry for the production of enzymes and organic acids, particularly citric acid, and the sequenced genome revealed a large number of major facilitator superfamily transporters and fungal zinc binuclear cluster transcription factors.

An oligonucleotide barcode for species identification in Trichoderma and Hypocrea.
It is concluded that oligonucleotide barcode is a powerful tool for the routine identification of Hypocrea/Trichoderma species and should be useful as a complement to traditional methods. Expand
Genome, transcriptome, and secretome analysis of wood decay fungus Postia placenta supports unique mechanisms of lignocellulose conversion
Comparisons with the closely relatedwhite-rot fungus Phanerochaete chrysosporium support an evolutionary shift from white-rot to brown-rot during which the capacity for efficient depolymerization of lignin was lost. Expand
A complete survey of Trichoderma chitinases reveals three distinct subgroups of family 18 chitinases
Genome‐wide analysis of chitinase genes in the Hypocrea jecorina (anamorph: Trichoderma reesei) genome database revealed the presence of 18 ORFs encoding putative chitinases, all of them belonging toExpand
Metabolic engineering strategies for the improvement of cellulase production by Hypocrea jecorina
Current knowledge about how cellulase biosynthesis is regulated is summarized, and recent approaches and suitable strategies for facilitating the targeted improvement of cellulase production by genetic engineering are outlined. Expand
Comparative genome sequence analysis underscores mycoparasitism as the ancestral life style of Trichoderma
A better understanding of mycoparasitism is offered, and the development of improved biocontrol strains for efficient and environmentally friendly protection of plants is enforced. Expand
The CRE1 carbon catabolite repressor of the fungus Trichoderma reesei: a master regulator of carbon assimilation
This study provides the first global insight into the molecular physiological response of a multicellular fungus to carbon catabolite regulation and identifies several not yet known targets in a growth-controlled environment. Expand
Plant cell wall-degrading enzymes and their secretion in plant-pathogenic fungi.
Differences between the CWDE arsenal of plant-pathogenic and non-plant- Pathogenic fungi are discussed, the importance of individual enzyme families for pathogenesis is highlighted, the secretory pathway that transports CWDEs out of the fungal cell is illustrated, and transcriptional regulation of expression of CWDE genes in both saprophytic and phytopathogenic fungi is reported.

Transcriptional Regulation of xyn1, Encoding Xylanase I, in Hypocrea jecorina
In vivo footprinting analysis of the xylanase1 (xyn1) promoter revealed three different nucleotide sequences used to bind proteins, prompting hypothesize that xyn1 regulation is based on the interplay of Cre1 and Ace1 as a general and specific repressor with Xyr1 as transactivator. Expand
