Toxicity and Transport For Fungal production of Industrial Compounds
TTRAFFIC is an ERA-IB consortium of seven partners from five European countries coordinated by us. The project aims to investigate the effect of subcellular compartmentation, and transport between the compartments, on fungal itaconic acid production. Our investigations focus on Ustilago maydis.
Funding: This project is funded by the "Bundesministerium für Ernährung und Landwirtschaft" (BMEL), through the project manager "Fachagentur Nachwachsende Rohstoffe e.V." (FNR) as part of the ERA-IB initiative.
