The FUNCODE project aims to generate a genome-wide library of the rules that govern gene expression in five important model fungi. The resources generated during the project will support a wide range of basic and applied research and biotechnological and industrial applications of fungi, including an understanding of gene regulatory circuits behind plant waste decomposition and multicellular development. The team expects that decoding the rules by which fungi orchestrate gene expression will be a key step to leveraging the full potential of fungi for industrial applications.
