Great Lakes Bioenergy Research Center (GLBRC) Featured in Special Issue of BioEnergy Research


The March issue of BioEnergy Research features research results from the DOE GLBRC. Eleven journal articles highlight four broad research themes: sustainable biofuels landscapes, improved biofuels feedstocks, improved conversion into advanced biofuels, and improved cellulosic biomass processing. The topics include the analysis of ecosystem services, soil microbial communities, the use of natural genetic mutations to create more suitable feedstocks for deconstruction into liquid fuels, bacterial pathways from nutrients to hydrogen, and enzyme and plant trait assays to improve conversion efficiencies. This is the second of three special issues of the journal to be devoted to the DOE Bioenergy Centers.
