Research Project: Protecting Fuel Ethanol Production Fermentation Processes with Bactericidal Yeast

Location: Animal Biosciences and Biotechnology Laboratory

Project Number: 1245-31000-103-02
Project Type: Reimbursable

Start Date: Nov 01, 2009
End Date: Jun 14, 2014

Objective:
Protect the cellulosic ethanolic fermentations from lactobacilli contaminants that reduce the yield and efficiency of biofuel ethanol production.

Approach:
Identify, subclone, and constitutively express lactobacillus peptidoglycan hydrolase antimicrobials on the surface of fermentative yeast.
