To create a scaffold system that can be used to test various enzymes to rapidly break down biomass as well as produce value-added products.
Determine ideal enzyme ratios (assembled on a protein scaffold) to hydrolyze various biomass substrates. Enzyme cocktails will be developed that will reduce the severity of costly pretreatment conditions.
