Understanding physiological responses to fermentation inhibitors is crucial to the delivery of a successful bioprocess. Pre-treatment methods inevitably generate a number of biologically detrimental compounds alongside the carbohydrates that are liberated from biomass. Inhibitors impact efficiency through decreasing both biomass and product yields. A thorough understanding of tolerance to pre-treatment inhibitors should be a major focus in ongoing strain engineering. This review can be used as a foundation that guides future metabolic engineering strategies.
