Modified yeast Researchers at the Joint BioEnergy Institute (JBEI; Emeryville, Calif.; www.jbei.org) have developed a genetically engineered strain of Saccharomyces cerevisiae that is capable of utilizing both glucose (a six-carbon sugar), and xylose (a five-carbon sugar) when presented with plant biomass sugars in bioprocessing operations. “By using pentose and hexose sugars as a carbon source, this strain of yeast is capable of producing a variety of compounds from a greater proportion of the starting material,” the JBEI researchers say. Native yeasts have a minimal ability to metabolize xylose. The strain is available for licensing or for collaborative research and development projects.
