|20130236941||Integrated Biorefinery - Systems and methods for producing bioproducts are shown. The systems and methods herein can be configured and used in an integrated biorefinery. The integrated biorefinery may comprise a sugar production facility such as a sugar mill, a production facility for one or more bioproduct(s) such as butanol, and optionally an ethanol production facility employing the system and method.||09-12-2013|
|20130095509||ENGINEERED LIGHT-EMITTING REPORTER GENES - Compositions and methods are provided for enhanced expression of light emitting reporters. Such reporters are used in methods for monitoring cultures for production of target compounds.||04-18-2013|
|20110318798||REMOVAL OF INHIBITORS OF MICROBIAL FERMENTATION FROM INHIBITOR-CONTAINING COMPOSITIONS - Methods are provided for conditioning an inhibitor-containing composition, such as a cellulosic biomass hydrolysate, to remove inhibitors of microbial growth and/or product production. The methods include precipitation of inhibitors by formation of complexes with metal salts, such as aluminum sulfate and ferric chloride.||12-29-2011|
|20110306083||SALT SELECTION OF MICROBIAL MUTANTS TO INCREASE BIOPRODUCT TOLERANCE, TITER, OR OSMOTIC SHOCK TOLERANCE - Methods are provided for selecting microbial strains with improved properties for fermentation and/or bioproduct production. A salt selection is employed to identify mutants with improved bioproduct tolerance, titer, or osmotic tolerance relative to a microbial strain from which they were derived.||12-15-2011|
|20110218365||ENGINEERED LIGHT-EMITTING REPORTER GENES AND METHODS OF USE - Compositions and methods are provided for enhanced expression of light emitting reporters. Such reporters are used in methods for monitoring cultures for production of target compounds. Additionally, methods are provided for the use of light emitting reporter systems and other reporter systems for selecting desired traits in an organism and for identifying or optimizing culture conditions.||09-08-2011|
|20100330633||Integrated System and Process for Bioproduct Production - Processes and systems for production of bioproducts such as biofuels are provided. The bioproduct production processes and systems utilize pretreatment of a carbohydrate-containing feedstock to produce soluble sugar molecules and continuous conversion of the pretreated feedstock to a bioproduct by an immobilized fermenting microorganism.||12-30-2010|
