New Yeast Strains for Second-Generation Ethanol: Pedro Tizei, University of Campinas
 28 October 2013

Watch Pedro Tizei, a Researcher at the University of Campinas, introduce current progress in second-generation bioethanol production: introducing genes into Saccharomyces cerevisiae which enable the yeast to hydrolyse and ferment complex sugars in cellulosic material, as opposed to the simple sugars used in first-generation production. Pedro discusses his research and how automation has enabled him to monitor and measure yeast growth continuously over time. SelectScience Interview for ‘Science in Brazil’ Special Feature.
