Swedish researchers pioneer yeast strain that can ferment C5 cellulosic sugars

In Sweden, researchers have developed a new type of baker’s yeast that can efficiently ferment pentose sugars, like those found in waste and hardwoods. The new strain of Saccharomyces cerevisiae, known as TMB3130, showed significantly improved aerobic growth rate and final biomass concentration on sugar media composed of two pentoses, xylose and arabinose.
