About these proceedings


In Biotechnology for Fuels and Chemicals: The Twenty-Fifth Symposium, leading American and international researchers from academia, industry, and government present the latest research and breakthroughs on how biotechnology is being used to produce economically competitive fuels and chemicals in a sustainable and environmentally responsible manner. The contributors discuss both fundamental science discoveries and the progress that has been made in commercialization efforts. Special attention is given to biofeedstock (plant genomics, production, and pretreatment), bioprocessing, direct production in plants, and the use of molecular biology and genomics to create new biocatalysts. The field continues to expand, and the ideas and techniques described here will play important roles in developing new biological processes for producing fuels and chemicals on a large scale, as well as for reducing pollution and waste disposal problems and their adverse impacts on global climate change. Cutting-edge and authoritative, Biotechnology for Fuels and Chemicals: The Twenty-Fifth Symposium provides an excellent overview of current research and development in the production of commodity fuels and chemicals via biological transformation.
