Brief description: The main objectives of PMOVN are

  1. identifying the roles of PMOs and related enzymes during M. oryzae pathogenesis; 
  2. developing new methods to control rice blast disease by exploiting natural molecules or inhibitor proteins effective against the fungal enzymes involved in virulence; 
  3. analysing the enzymatic activities of M. oryzae PMOs and related enzymes on polysaccharides and lignin to develop new enzyme mixtures for rice straw degradation and biofuel production.
