Assessing The Dynamics Of Saccharomyces Cerevisiae And Scheffersomyces Stipitis Co-culture

The fossil fuel reserves of our world are depleting. Most of the government agencies are funding the research and development of fossil fuel alternatives such as bio-alcohols, biodiesel, etc, preferably produced using green technology. Ethanol, an alcohol, is produced by fermentation of sugars employing microorganisms like yeast or bacteria.The sources of sugars include food crops (sugarcane, corn, wheat, etc.) and lignocellulosic crop residues (sugarcane bagasse, corncobs, wheat straw, rice straw, etc.).
