Abstract (300 words maximum)

Fungus are found ubiquitously in every environment and can be used beneficial ways (biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, and fermentation science) or are human detriments (fungal disease). We seek to subvert fungal self-control by using a cell-penetrating peptide delivery system to target cells, mainly yeast, for expression of a new enzymatic function or to unknowingly take up an anti-fungal protein.
