Chitin and its derivates have many industrial and medical uses. There is a demand for chitin-modifying enzymes with new or modified properties and as microorganisms are the primary degraders of chitin in the environment, they provide a source of chitin-modifying enzymes with novel properties. We have analyzed the diversity, domain structure and phylogenetic relationships between family 18 chitinases based on complete genome sequences of bacteria, archaea, viruses, fungi, plants and animals.
