Hey Karl. Sorry to get off topic, but aren't you familiar with WV? I'm heading there in the spring and i want to pick some morels while i'm there. Do you have any insight on when it's a good time to look for them?

A mutated strain of T. viride (Trichoderma reesei) was used to produce large ammounts of cellulase to be used in a process called enzymatic hydrolysis. The cellulase enzyme converts cellulose, found in wood, to glucose. Fermentative organisms can then convert the glucose to ethanol to be used as biofuel.

Looper yup, morels abound here about late April, May and even a cool June. 'bout a couple days after a nice cool rain..strange shrooms.
good but really strange. used to pan saute em in butter and a little wild ramps.*
nice bread and cheese and bottle of red wine.
*garlic is a fair substitute..

and yes..trichderma viride can convert cellulose, any, to cellulase, a sugar..and on into ethanol..fuel and drink too.. but I'd much rather make a nice shine, apple jack or XXX vodka from the right stuff..fer drinkin' alky.
and..
stoned washed jeans is one of the big uses of trichoderma...
fungal rotted jeans..gotta love 'em.
