About This Project

Mycoremediation is a form of bioremediation that uses fungi to clean up contaminated sites. Brown rot and white rot are categories of fungi that produce different suites of digestive enzymes that have each shown potential for mycoremediation. We aim to bolster the efficiency of mycoremediation techniques currently in use by combining white rot and brown rot fungi to produce a broader arsenal of digestive enzymes to break down diesel in contaminated soils.
