Industrially-relevant strains: The Digest’s 2017 Multi-Slide Guide to Biological Upgrading of Sugars


The US Department of Energy has a goal of developing industrially-relevant strains to meet titer, rate, and yield targets for fuel precursors for the 2022 BC Platform cost target goals of $3/GGE. A project led by PI Gregg Beckham at the National renewable Energy Laboratory focuses on aerobic fatty acids and anaerobic, secreted C2-C6 carboxylic acids. The research team aims for eventual commercial adoption of these routes and associated strains.

These slides were presented at the DOE 2017 Project Peer Review earlier this year.
