Genome-Based Comparison of All Species of the Genus Moorella, and Status of the Species Moorella thermoacetica and Moorella thermoautotrophica
Fermentation of gases provides a promising opportunity for the production of biochemicals from renewable resources, which has resulted in a growing interest in acetogenic bacteria. ThermophilicExpand
Moorella thermoacetica, a workhorse creating value from various gaseous substrates
The fermentation of waste gas streams to produce high value compounds is an attractive alternative to traditional biomass hydrolysate fermentation. Industrial waste gases as well as carbonandExpand
