What I'm currently reading:
+
-
 
+
-
Lynd, Zyl, et al. "Consolidated bioprocessing of cellulosic biomass: an update"
+
-
Current Opinion in Biotechnology 2005, 16:577-583
+
-
 
+
-
---This paper gives a pretty good (though non-technical) overview of research into
+
-
consolidated bioprocessing of cellulose into ethanol, and some of the main problems
+
-
as well. If we're interested in looking at fuels, this is definitely a good paper to look at.
+
-
 
+
-
Jeffries, Thomas. "Engineering yeasts for xylose metabolism" Current opinion in biotechnology
+
-
2006, 17:320-326.
+
-
 
+
-
---This paper looks at turning xylose into ethanol via yeasts, and recent results in this field
+
-
of research. If we think we might not want to use bacteria, this is a good overview.
+
-
 
+
-
Sticklen, Mariam. "Plant genetic engineering to improve biomass characteristics for biofuels."
+
-
Current Opinion in Biotechnology 2006, 17:315-319
+
-
 
+
-
--Looks at problems from biomass cellulose, such as lignin, and current research into ways to treat it.
+
-
Also looks at other ways to engineer plants. I think less relevant for us, but still interesting as a way
+
-
for getting a feel of some of the issues surrounding cellulose
