Dr. Yong-Su Jin and Dr. Jamie H. D. Cate Model-guided strain improvement: Simultaneous hydrolysis and co-fermentation of cellulosic sugars Biotechnology Journal 7
Despite tremendous effort, no economical production of ethanol from the abundant plant biomass in plant cell walls has yet been implemented. Two factors are needed for this to become a reality: the economic saccharification of recalcitrant plant cell walls and the efficient fermentation of mixed sugars (glucose and xylose) that are prevalent in cellulosic hydrolysates. Yong-Su Jin and Jamie Cate comment on the latest study from Doug Clark's group, which provides a comprehensive model of cellulose hydrolysis and fermentation of prevalent sugars in lignocellulosic hydrolysates.
