We are happy to announce the publication of our work on modular hemicellulose production in Biotechnology for Biofuels, a leading (open-access!) journal for advancing the biological production of fuels, chemicals, and biomaterials. Here, we describe how enzymes from the cellulose synthase-like superfamily (found throughout the plant kingdom) can be assembled as modular parts (akin to… Continue reading Building modular hemicellulose synthases, now out in Biotechnology for Biofuels
By evaluating different mutant combinations, we discovered that brassica seeds with fewer heteromannan branches are more resistant to salt stress.
Wheat is one of the most important cereal crops on the planet. Here, we investigated the wheat enzymes are responsible for synthesizing mannan, a dietary fiber.
