BACKGROUND Duckweed can thrive on anthropogenic wastewater and produce tremendous biomass production. Due to its relatively high starch and low lignin percentage, duckweed is a good candidate for bioethanol fermentation. Previous studies have observed that water devoid of nutrients is good for starch accumulation, but its molecular mechanism remains unrevealed. RESULTS This study globally analyzed the response to nutrient starvation in order to investigate the starch accumulation in duckweed… CONTINUE READING
