Brown University researchers unlock key to lignin conversion

| February 19, 2013

In Rhode Island, a group of researchers at Brown University has unlocked the genetic and molecular mechanisms behind how genes underlying lignin degradation are regulated. This knowledge could have practical importance in that researchers could possibly use this information to engineer bacteria that can convert lignin into the biofuels or high-value chemicals.
