TitleHalophilic Communities as a Source for Novel Lignocellulolytic Enzymes
Study TypeOther
Abstract The goal of my project has been to identify microbes and enzymes tolerant of varying levels of salinity. The driving hypothesis for this work is that salt tolerance correlates with ionic liquid tolerance. Ionic liquids are presently the best means of pretreating lignocellulosic biomass to better ena ..
