Genes That Improve Tolerance To Lignocellulosic Toxins When Overexpressed In Yeast And Methods Of Use In Biofuel Production
Inventors: Audrey Gasch, Maria Sardi
The present invention provides isolated gene sequences useful in increasing lignocellulosic toxin tolerance in yeast. Such engineered yeast are useful in methods of biofuel production, particularly ethanol production. Methods of bioengineering recombinant yeast with increased lignocellulosic toxin tolerance are also provided.
