Genes That Improve Tolerance To Lignocellulosic Toxins When Overexpressed In Yeast And Methods Of Use In Biofuel Production
WARF: P160326US02

Inventors: Audrey Gasch, Maria Sardi

The Invention
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.
