Project Number: 8042-31000-103-02
Start Date: Nov 01, 2009
End Date: Jun 14, 2014
Protect the cellulosic ethanolic fermentations from lactobacilli contaminants that reduce the yield and efficiency of biofuel ethanol production.
Identify, subclone, and constitutively express lactobacillus peptidoglycan hydrolase antimicrobials on the surface of fermentative yeast.
