dc.description.abstract Protozoa, along with fungi, represent the rumen eukaryotome and account for up to 50% of microbial biomass[1]. Nonetheless, they are often overlooked. It is inferred that rumen protozoa play a role in lipid, protein and fibre metabolism, however, few of these enzymes have been identified and characterised[2]. Enzymes previously isolated from the rumen microbiome have shown great potential for application in industry (biodiesel manufacture, the food industry, washing detergents etc.) suggesting a wealth of untapped, novel activity in the rumen eukaryotes. en
