Conversion of Ammonia-Pretreated Switchgrass to Biofuel Precursors by Bacterial-Fungal Consortia Under Solid-State and Submerged-State Cultivation
The results show that the state of cultivation, solid-state or submerged-state, affects the community structure as well as enzyme activities produced by these bacterial-fungal consortia. The enzyme mixture produced by the bacterial-fungal consortia released higher amount of xylose than glucose during saccharification of DSG.
