Title: Discovery of potential pathways for biological conversion of poplar wood into lipids by co-fermentation of Rhodococci strains

Abstract

Biological routes for utilizing both carbohydrates and lignin are important to reach the ultimate goal of bioconversion of full carbon in biomass into biofuels and biochemicals. Recent biotechnology advances have shown promises toward facilitating biological transformation of lignin into lipids. Natural and engineered Rhodococci strains (e.g., R. opacus PD630, R. jostii RHA1, and R. jostii RHA1 VanA ) have been demonstrated to utilize lignin for lipid production, and co-culture of them can promote lipid production from lignin.
