Metagenomics for Enzyme Discovery
A major obstacle for application of lignocellulose from agricultural waste materials for feed and industrial-scale production lies in the inefficient deconstruction of plant material. This is mainly due to the recalcitrant nature of the substrate toward enzymatic breakdown and the relatively high cost and low activity of available hydrolytic enzymes
