5 MultiGenome Access Technology for Industrial Catalysts (MGATech) An EU - China Collaboration European Commission Fifth Framework RTD Programme Quality of Life and Management of Living Resources Key Action 3: The Cell Factory RTD Priority 3.3.4: Identification and Sustainable Use of Metabolic and Genetic Diversity as a Source of New Valuable Products Review of FP5 in IMCAS

6 MultiGenome Access Technology for Industrial Catalysts An EU – China Collaboration Objectives Obtain material from a range of unique Chinese hypersaline and thermal sites Survey microbial biodiversity, and establish and archive a collection of novel microbes Develop methods for the efficient isolation and recovery of microbial genes from these sites Identify and produce high added value new biomolecules derived from these sites and assess these new biomolecules for commercial exploitation Overview Novel genetic methods will be developed for accessing gene products derived from Chinese hot springs and salt lakes to which we have unique access in a collaboration with the Chinese authorities. These Chinese extreme environments are of outstanding significance as microbial ecosystems with unique chemistries. The sites harbour largely unexplored microbial genetic resources that will be harnessed as sources of new and valuable enzymes. Gene libraries reflecting the microbial biodiversity at these exceptional sites will be employed for the identification and production of valuable new enzymes for sustainable applications in biotechnological processes and consumer products. This special collaboration, which is the first microbial biotechnology collaboration between the EU and China, will provide substantial opportunities for the development of European and Chinese biotechnology. European Commission Fifth Framework RTD Programme Thematic Programme : Quality of Life and Management of Living Resources Key Action 3 : The Cell Factory RTD Priority : Identification and Sustainable Use of Metabolic and Genetic Diversity as a Source of New Valuable Products Project Number: QLK3-CT Hydrothermal outbreak, upper site small pool Rehai thermal area Pearl Spring – Rehai thermal area Sampling algal mat at large basin Langpu geothermal area

7 Deliverables and Achievements Sample Acquisition: The mounting of expeditions and collection of samples/nucleic acids from seldom accessed thermal and hypersaline sites. – The first expedition to the Yunnan Province (Rehai area) was completed in March 2003 and the second expedition to Inner Mongolia will take place in September Gene Acquisition: We will recover microbial genes from a variety of samples, some partially processed on site. There has been good progress with the isolation of DNA from geothermal sites visited during the first sampling expedition and we have begun to generate bacterial gene libraries derived from these sites. The first gene library derived from “Higher Microbes” (i.e. fungi, algae and protozoans) has been constructed from a hot spring algal mat. Organism Acquisition: We will generate and archive culture collections of microbes from these sites. The first joint paper by Consortium members has been submitted for publishing approval. Enzyme Acquisition: We will detect and assess industrially-relevant enzymes from the genetic resources derived from these expeditions and technologies.

9 Design of an Integrated Environmental Clean Industrial Fungal Process Integrating Water Management for the Valorisation of Agricultural Wastes in Paper Industry An EU - China Collaboration European Commission Fourth Framework RTD Programme Thematic Programme:Basic Natural Resources Project number:ERBIC18CT Review of FP4 in IMCAS

10 Design of an Integrated Environmental Clean Industrial Fungal Process Integrating Water Management for the Valorisation of Agricultural Wastes in Paper Industry Activities: To achieve these objectives, the proposed project has been constructed with an integrated multidisciplinary approach combining complementary Chinese and European industrial partners including small enterprises in close association with academics originating from both countries. Objectives: 1.Water pollution prevention: Development of a fungal enzyme process using mainly laccases for improving annual plant kraft pulp bleachability. 2.Water pollution treatment and recycling: Design of a fungal process for effluent detoxification and decolourization in order to facilitate the subsequent biological treatment and water recycling.
