A Novel Approach to Facilitate Accessibility of Cellulose and Hemicellulose: Characterization of Hybrid Poplar Transformed with a Tyrosine Rich Peptide Gene

The objective of this research project is to develop a process for replacing a small fraction of lignin-lignin linkages with lignin-peptide linkages that will not compromise plant fitness but will facilitate the "cracking" of lignin so cellulosic components can be more easily hydrolyzed.
