To ensure a reliable future source of added value chemicals and energy, the utilization of sustainable biomass has considerable advantages over petroleum-based sources. Microbial Cell Factories presents this ongoing series to cover the development of microorganisms for the production of various added value chemicals and advanced biofuels from biomass. Potential topics include, but are not limited, to engineering microbial strains with high biomass hydrolysis activity, high product yield, productivities and titers, ability to use many carbon sources, and resistance to toxic compounds released during the pretreatment of biomass.
Please see here for further details, including how to submit your new work to the series.
