Engineered yeast converts toxin aldehydes from hydrolysed lignocellulosic feedstock into alcohol [Full subscriber]

In the production of cellulosic biofuels, breaking down lignocellulosic feedstock to produce fermentable sugars releases numerous by-products that are toxic to yeast most commonly used to produce biofuels. Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have engineered yeast to convert toxic cellulosic by-product aldehydes into alcohols.…
