    Description

    This review provides an overview of the physiology and genetics of lignin degradation by white rot basidiomycetes. Emphasis is on recent advances and the reader is referred to earlier comprehensive reviews for historical perspective and background (Kirk and Farrell 1987; Gold and Alic 1993; Higuchi 1993; Cullen and Kersten 1996; Cullen 1997). Recent completion of a draft genome sequence has established P. chrysosporium as the premier model system, and our review therefore concentrates on this species. Other wood decay fungi are only occasionally mentioned. Areas of uncertainty are highlighted.
