A recent analysis of Postia placenta’s genome, secretome and transcritome, may pave ways for better biofuel productions in the future. Postia placenta, also known as brown rot, can decompose plant, specifically wooden material rapidly. In the recent scientific study, the international group of scientists found a system of extracellular enzymes that occurs uniquely in the [...]
