Production of cellulosic biofuels has drawn increasing attention. However, currently no microorganism can produce biofuels, particularly butanol, directly from cellulosic biomass efficiently. Here we engineered a cellulolytic bacterium, Clostridium cellulovorans, for n-butanol and ethanol production directly from cellulose by introducing an aldehyde/alcohol(More)
Clostridium cellulovorans, a cellulolytic bacterium producing butyric and acetic acids as main fermentation products, is a promising host for biofuel production from cellulose. However, the transformation method of C. cellulovorans was not available, hindering its genetic engineering. To overcome this problem, its restriction modification (RM) systems were(More)
