Aim: The purpose of present work was to utilize lignocellulosic forest waste for cost-effective production of commercially important enzymes i.e. cellulase and xylanase by employing co-culture of Aspergillus niger F7 and Fusarium oxysporum F8 in solid state fermentation (SSF). Material and Methods: Fungal strains i.e. A. niger F7 and F. oxysporum F8 isolated from degrading forest litter were used as co-culture and their enzyme biosynthesis on forest waste was noticed. The prominent forest… CONTINUE READING
