Title: Comparative evaluation of Populus variants total sugar release and structural features following pretreatment and digestion by two distinct biological systems

Abstract

Populus natural variants have been shown to realize a broad range of sugar yields during saccharification, however, the structural features responsible for higher sugar release from natural variants are not clear. In addition, the sugar release patterns resulting from digestion with two distinct biological systems, fungal enzymes and Clostridium thermocellum, have yet to be evaluated and compared. This study evaluates the effect of structural features of three natural variant Populus lines, which includes the line BESC standard, with respect to the overall process of sugar release for two different biological systems.
