To achieve this goal, future research can focus on development of new strains that can utilize a variety of feedstocks and/or consolidation of multiple pathways into a single organism. , cellulose, hemicellulose, and lignin), and others could produce biofuels from the depolymerized monomer substrates to divide the labor.
