Grand Ballroom D-E, lobby level (Hilton Clearwater Beach)
Sara Blumer-Schuette - North Carolina State University, Raleigh, NC and Jonathan R. Mielenz - White Cliffs Biosystems, Rockwood, TN
Application of newly developed bacteria for ethanol and other fuel production will be presented in this session. Research topic include new bacterial strain discovery, progress using genetic engineering, microbial evolution, and pathway engineering approaches for as well as testing of natural or constructed consortia for bioconversion.
