Abstract

We have identified methods to produce inducers of cellulase production that will streamline the production of these enzymes for cellulosic ethanol and other applications. During Phase II of this project, we will scale up the methods, determine their applicability to commercially relevant hosts, and optimize conditions for their induction.
