WP1 Genetic approaches to improve biomass quality for cellulosic biofuel production

Develop robust methods for the improvement of biomass quality for biorefinery and biofuel production using natural variation in maize in an agronomically relevant context. Genetic determinism of biomass quality will be also identified in Miscanthus and, by our Brazilian partners, in sugar cane. The transferability of this knowledge between these grass species will be assessed. To provide biomass from breeding populations of maize and Miscanthus for HT saccharification assays in WP5.
