The general lecture on the wood cellulose and fungal degradation topics was held on March 23, 2019 at the Auditorium of Faculty of Forestry UGM. The lecture, attended by around 60 undergraduate and postgraduate students, presented two experts from the Tokyo University Agricultural and Technology (TUAT), Japan. Before the main presentation, Prof. Ryo Funada, as the Head of the Postgraduate Program (UGAS-TUAT) gave an introduction to the TUAT campus and the collaboration that has been built with the Faculty Forestry UGM. He also informed the opportunities for student and staff exchanges. For general lectures, Dr. Yoshiki Horikawa presented the topic “Structure of cellulose microfibril with special attention to fiber direction”. In his research, the structure of cellulose microfibrils from various sources has been studied in terms of the properties after acid hydrolysis treatment. For the second presentation, Prof. Makoto Yoshida explored biochemistry on the topic “Plant biomass degradation by fungi: important of redox reaction”. The discussion focused on white rot fungi especially in enzymatic mechanisms and the transfer of ions. The general lecture moderated by Prof. Sri Nugroho Marsoem ended with a discussion session.
