Fungus, named TZ1, was isolated from coal mine soil at the Fushunxi colliery, Liaoning Province, North of China. The lignite's bioconversion rate was about 23.3% by TZ1. The morphological, biochemical, physiological characterization and analysis based on 18S rDNA gene sequence indicated that the strain TZ1 was most closely related to Hypocrea lixii (100% similarity in gene sequence), bioconversion lignite experiments with this new strain showed that it could play an important role in degradation of Chinese lignite. © 2010 Academic Journals.
