Title: History of the cellulase program at the U. S. Army Natick Development Center

Abstract

The army research program was initiated in an attempt to identify the organisms responsible for the rapid deterioration of textiles in the tropical regions and to determine the mechanisms by which they operate. The research has resulted in the publication of over 100 articles. This is briefly reviewed with emphasis on the evolution of the concept of the cellulase complex, use of cellulase for conversion of plant materials into digestible products, production of glucose, and the availability of mutant strains.
