Improved production from modified switchgrass when combined with an engineered C. thermocellum strain
This is the first report of the use of a microbe engineered to produce increased amounts of a biofuel on a bioenergy feedstock that has been modified for the same purpose. The results demonstrate the potential additive advantages from combining a modified feedstock with an engineered consolidated bioprocessing microorganism.
