Abstract

Despite decades long development, no natural or engineered organism has been isolated that can produce commodity products at the rates and yields required by industry via direct microbial conversion. However, new genomic editing tools and systems level knowledge of metabolism provides opportunities to develop yeast strains for second-generation biorefineries.
