    Optimization of cellulase production by thermophilic mould Myceliophthora thermophila BJTLRMDU3 was studied in solid state fermentation. Myceliophthora thermophila produced maximum cellulase (45.81 U/g DMR) at substrate to moisture ratio of 1:3 with 5-d old inoculum at water activity 0.95, ammonium sulfate (0.5%) and PEG 20000 (0.5%) at 45 °C using “one variable at a time”...
