Yeast and fungi are powerful biocatalysts but the ideal microorganism for the complete and rapid bioconversion of the multiple substrates in biomass does not exist. This session will present recent research progress with yeast and fungi to overcome the fundamental limitations to rapid bioconversion of biomass substrates. Research topic include new microbial strain discovery, progress using genetic engineering, microbial evolution, and pathway engineering approaches for as well as testing of natural or constructed consortia for bioconversion. There are two sessions on yeast and fungi.
