Biotechnology for Biofuel Production and Optimization presents the latest information on biofuel production, an important field of research that seeks to help us reduce our dependence on fossil fuels and decrease our impact on the environment. The book provides an overview of the variety of biofuels and biofuel precursors currently being produced and the technologies developed that are important to improving production rates and titers to become financially relevant for large-scale production.
The field of biofuel production has experienced a surge in recent years in response to the imminent need for renewable and cleaner sources of energy. The use of metabolic engineering is imperative for the development of efficient pathways for the production of a number of biofuels in both model and novel organisms. Numerous breakthroughs have developed in the field of biofuel production in recent years, many due to the advent of synthetic biology technologies used for metabolic engineering of microbes. Herein, this book describe the pathways utilized for the production of a variety of promising biofuels, as well as the techniques that are being employed for the improvement of construction, use, titers, and tolerance in a variety of organisms.
