Lignin

  1. machine that separates lignin from biofuel feedstock.
  2. method for tricking plant cells into thinking they are under compression-- this produces more lignin
  3. http://old.iupac.org/publications/pac/1996/pdf/6811x2089.pdf
  4. The enzymes are known for lignin degradation. We want to develope a device that produces the properly functioning enzyme along with the correct cofactors. We would also like to investigate means of suppressing other metabolic mechanisms in the cell to truly show lignin degradation.
  5. Need to write this stuff up in an abstract-- lignin peroxidase, veracytyl cofactor etc,etc.
