Frontiers in Biochemical Engineering. This issue of Biotechnology Journal is dedicated to Professor Michael Shuler of Cornell University in honor of his seminal research contributions and his pivotal role in the establishment and growth of biochemical engineering.
The cover image is an artist's depiction of a Saccharomyces cerevisiae cell consuming cellobiose and xylose (center) and cellulase enzymes catalyzing the hydrolysis of cellulose (lower left). In a scenario in which cellulose hydrolysis is carried out alongside hexose and pentose co-fermentation, the engineered yeast strain may prevent cellobiose inhibition of cellulase enzymes while reducing glucose inhibition of xylose uptake.
