High-flux Isobutanol Production using Engineered Escherichia coli: A Bioreactor Study with in situ

Description:
Promising approaches to produce higher alcohols, e.g., isobutanol, using Escherichia coli have been developed with successful results. This research translates the isobutanol process from shake flasks to a 1-L bioreactor in order to characterize three E. coli strains.
