Call for papers for 36th SBFC
Abstract submission is now open for the 36th Symposium on Biotechnology for Fuels and Chemicals happening in the spring of 2014. Please submit your abstract online.
Session topics for 36th SBFC
Feedstock I – Plant Genetics and Recalcitrance
Research aimed at producing improved plant cultivars is underway worldwide with the goal of developing biomass sources with improved cell wall structure, growth and composition characteristics beneficial to bioconversion. This session will highlight research on breeding to improve plant yield, advances in domestication of promising biomass species, in planta expression of enzymes, fundamental understanding of biophysical origin of biomass recalcitrance, developments in crops with reduced recalcitrance for better processing characteristics, and advances in plant systems biology research.
