 5. Laccase gene expression in a sugar maple forest site

 work in Prof. Vandenbols and Prof. Zaks group

Fig1 Oceana forest site

The focus of this study was to develop new primers to follow the expression of fungal lignocellulolytic enzyme coding genes in a forst site in Michigan, which was chronically supplemented with an increased amount of nitrogen. One enzyme with ligninolytic potential among them was laccase.
