"This year Cornell iGEM is creating a novel fungal toolkit for higher order basidiomycetes using Ganoderma lucidum. The toolkit will include constructs with antibiotic resistance for selection, constitutive and inducible regulatory elements, fluorescence markers to detect expression levels, and constructs to test the potency of homologous recombination. In addition, Cornell iGEM aims to improve current mycelium-based biomaterials, such as those produced by Ecovative Design, by introducing targeted antifungal genes as well as carotenoid biosynthetic pathways."
