Cellulosic biofuels production enhanced by yeast bioengineered with Neurospora crassa metabolic pathway [Registered]

“We’ve discovered new chemicals generated by fungi and bacteria as metabolites in their strategy for consuming the plant cell wall that are a general part of the global carbon cycle,” says the lead researcher Jamie Cate, a staff scientist in Berkeley Lab’s Physical Biosciences Division. “We should now be able to engineer biofuel-producing yeast to do what these fungi and bacteria do, opening up many new possible scenarios for making biofuels and other important products.”…
