    Abstract : Saccharomyces cerevisiae ferments hexoses in lignocellulosic hydrolysates under anaerobic conditions with high rates and ethanol yields. However, S. cerevisiae is naturally unable to utilize the pentose fraction of the hydrolysates. Xylose is the most abundant pentose sugar, and although recombinant S. READ MORE
