Microbiomes And Methods For Producing Medium-Chain Fatty Acids From Organic Substrates
WARF: P170271US05

Inventors: Timothy Donohue, Matthew Scarborough, Daniel Noguera

The Invention
Microbiome compositions and uses thereof. The microbiome compositions include a set of microbes. The sets of microbes contain members of Lactobacillaceae, Eubacteriaceae, Lachnospiraceae, and Coriobacteriaceae. The number of individual physical microbes in the set constitutes a certain percentage of the total number of individual physical microbes in the microbiome composition. The microbiome compositions can be used for producing medium-chain fatty acids from organic substrates through anaerobic fermentation in a medium. The medium can include lignocellulosic stillage.
