Single gene deletions associated with increased ethanol production. The predicted maximum growth rate (X) is shown for each simulated deletion scenario during growth on a cellobiose minimal medium with a measured cellobiose uptake rate of 12.8 mmol gDW-1 hr-1. Also shown is the range of ethanol production that can be achieved at the maximum growth rate See Additional file 1 for details about the genes deleted and the affected reactions.
