Improving Metabolic Engineering and Characterization of Clostridium Thermocellum for Improved Cellulosic Ethanol Production

Biofules are an important option for humanity to move away from its dependence on fossil fuels. Transitioning from food crops to lignocellulosic alternatives for the production of biofuels is equally important. Most commonly, biofuels are produced using a crop such as corn or soybeans to feed sugars to the yeast,
