Study Detail

TitleFunctional diversity of carbohydrate-active enzymes enabling a bacterium to ferment plant biomass. Files of Clostridium phytofermentans RNA expression during growth on xylan (birchwood).
Study TypeTranscriptome Analysis
Abstract Plant-fermenting bacteria are important for the global carbon cycle, human nutrition, and industrial production of renewable fuels and commodities from cellulosic biomass. Plants are primarily composed of heterogeneous polysaccharides, requiring plant-degrading microbes to encode many carbohydrate-a .. [more]
Description We performed strand-specific RNA sequencing (dUTP method) of Clostridium phytofermentans fermenting polysaccharides and sugars. The study_BED_7 describes single-end RNA-seq reads for the biological duplicates during growth on xylan.
