The bioconversion of a drug using fungi often is limited due to 1. Pellet morphology of fungi, 2. Low water solubility and dissolution rate of certain drugs and 3. Low permeability of drug into fungal cells. Pellet morphology is an important parameter and can be altered to fine suspension (thus increased surface area) by the addition of..
