  • Is there a biomass standard
  • How do we knock the xylose metabolism parts out of the chromosome
  • Put xyl A, B, E under control of xylR
  • Do we we want the xylose metabolism to be under tight repression?
  • Should we be looking at multiple sugar metabolizing pathways?

Plan:

  • Noah/Garrett-look up biomass papers come up with questions
  • Luc-come up with weekly plan
