Therefore we are creating a library of synthetic fungal promoters that are: predictable, robust, and scalable. These were designed using special software based on sequence conservation. In the design we have included feedback from relevant companies and scientists, meaning that the promoters are useful in both industry and academia.
The total annual revenue from enzymes produced by Aspergillus spp. is 480 mio USD per year .
