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.
