Biosurfactants are a class of functional molecules produced and secreted by microorganisms, which play important roles in cell physiology such as flagellum-dependent or -independent bacterial spreading, cell signaling, and biofilm formation. They are amphipathic compounds and comprise a variety of chemical structures, including rhamnolipids, typically(More)
We have recently demonstrated that heterologous expression of a bacterial xylose isomerase gene (xylA) of Burkholderia cenocepacia enabled a laboratorial Saccharomyces cerevisiae strain to ferment xylose anaerobically, without xylitol accumulation. However, the recombinant yeast fermented xylose slowly. In this study, an evolutionary engineering strategy(More)
