Engineering and evaluation of yeast strains for the production of lactic acid from cellulosic sugars (2016-07-11)Terrestrial biomass consists largely of lignocellulosic materials. Abundant in nature, lignocellulosic biomass can be cultivated easily on land otherwise unsuitable for traditional crops or be harvested from crop waste, ...
(2016-12-01)As human population is expanding, the demand for food, crop feeds, and energy have also increased. The majority of energy source is from petroleum and the massive production carbon dioxide from high-energy consumption links ...
Improved xylose fermentation by expression of a putative xylose transporter encoding gene HXT2.4 in Saccharomyces cerevisiae (2013-05-24)Saccharomyces cerevisiae is considered one of the promising microorganisms in lignocellulosic bioethanol production. Unfortunately S. cerevisiae cannot consume xylose, a pentose sugar which comprises almost 30% of ...
Metabolic engineering of yeast strains for renewable biomass utilization and valuable chemical production (2017-04-21)The overall goal of this thesis study is to use metabolic engineering and biotechnology tools for developing optimal yeast strains capable of utilizing various sugars derived from renewable biomass and produce valuable ...
