Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: Inhibitory compounds generated during acid hydrolysis of renewable agricultural biomass interfere with subsequent ethanol fermentation. We elucidate the chemical stress tolerance mechanisms of Saccharomyces cerevisiae using genomic expression analysis; and develop genetically engineered novel ethanologenic strains to detoxify fermentation inhibitors in situ for effective bioethanol production.
