Hi there, I am Peijie Chen, and I have started my PhD project in September 2020 in Fungal Genomics Group. I have been curious about winemaking since I was a child, and the mechanism behind this is even more fascinating. From genes to proteins (enzymes), simple ATCG permutations and combinations create unlimited possibilities. This also gives us the possibility of manipulating genes to obtain ideal microorganisms. I am now working on genetic engineering of Aureobasidium spp. and Trichoderma spp. for better CAZyme production so that we can achieve high utilization of massive plant biomass and better renewable resources production.
