    Background: The first genome of a selective lignin degrader is available. Results: Its screening shows 26 peroxidase genes, and 5 genes were heterologously expressed and the catalytic properties investigated. Conclusion: Two new peroxidases oxidize simple and dimeric lignin models and efficiently depolymerize lignin. Significance: Although lignin peroxidase and versatile peroxidase had not been reported in C. subvermispora, the genomic screening suggests the presence of related lignin-degrading enzymes.
