Abstract

Filamentous fungi share many biological characteristics and processes with the complex higher eukaryotes, including multicellularity, development and differentiation programs and intercellular signaling. Their experimental tractability makes them useful model systems to study the complexity of the eukaryotic cell. This chapter aims to review the insights into the repertoire of carbohydrate modifying enzymes as gained from the genome sequences of Aspergillus niger and other industrially applied filamentous fungi. Partially, this chapter will be a reflection of the lessons learned in a project on carbohydrate modifying enzymes from A. niger, called CarbNet
