Morphology and the physiology are the main factors that are necessary to explain and predict the design process and bioreactor performance. On the other hand, T. versicolor is cultivated on inert or non-inert solid substrates. Among the latter, lignocellulosic biomass is the most common substrate used for both inoculum and bioproduct production. In some cases, the SSF product is a biotransformed lignocellulosic biomass that can be applied to biofuel production, biobased product production or animal feed. T. versicolor, one of the most easily identifiable polypores and a common wood-rotting species on dead hardwoods, is a multicolored mushroom recognisable throughout the world. The fruiting body of T. versicolor, such as of other mushrooms, has medicinal and nutritional properties. The macromolecules that are present in mushrooms are carbohydrates, proteins, minerals and lipids. T. versicolor is currently important because of its broad spectrum of application both in the food and pharmaceutical industries.
