- ... The instant invention is drawn towards transformed strains of Fusarium sporotrichioides effective for the production of lycopene. The transformed strains comprise an expression cassette having three genes encoding, respectively, geranylgeranyl-pyrophosphate synthase, phytoene synthase and phytoene desaturase (i.e. Tri5crtE, Tri5crtB and Tri5crtl). The transformed strains of Fusarium sporotrichioid ...
