Title: Industrial biotechnology application in fuel and chemical production
Biography: Anli Geng
Industrial biotechnology is a set of practices that use living cells (such as bacteria, yeast, algae) or component of cells like enzymes, to generate industrial products and processes. This presentation focuses on the application of industrial biotechnology in technology development for fuel and chemical production. The talk will cover industrial biotechnology application in the development of cellulolytic enzymes and metabolic engineering of yeast for the conversion of lignocellulosic biomass to fuels and chemicals. The conversion of oil palm empty fruit bunch, the main biomass resource in Southeast Asia, will be particularly discussed.
