New insights into how cellulose is built could indicate how to break it apart for biofuels
New insights into how cellulose is built could indicate how to break it apart for biofuels 26 March 2018A comprehensive look at how plants build cellulose, the primary building block of the walls of most plant cells that is used in a wide variety of manmade materials, could have important implications for its use in biofuels. Researchers at Penn State have identified the major steps in the process as well as the tools used by plant cells to create cellulose, including proteins that transport critical components to the location where cellulose is made.
