Recent advances in systems biology, omics, and computational studies allow us to carry out data mining for improving biofuel production bioprocesses. Of particular interest are bioprocesses that center on microbial capabilities to biotransform both the hexose and pentose fractions present in crop residues. This called for a systematic exploration of the(More)
Evaporation is a key operation in many industries and its optimization is required for the efficient management of water and energy within the process. During the operation, dissolved solids settle on the heat exchange surfaces with the consequent increase in the heat transfer resistance. Therefore, periodic shutdowns of the trains of evaporators are(More)
We investigated the behavior of yeast of the genus Kluyveromyces (K. fragilis 507, K. lactis 29 and K. lactis 10), which grow on lactose as sole carbon source, since they possess an enzyme system for the utilization of this sugar. We determined the beta-galactosidase activity of these strains, grown in the logarithmic phase in media containing glucose and(More)
