C4 grasses are among the most productive plants and most promising cellulosic biofuel feedstocks. Successful implementation of cellulosic biofuel feedstocks will depend on the improvement of critical crop characteristics and subsequent conversion technologies. The content and composition of lignin, cellulose, and hemicellulose, their biomass yields, and their biotic and abiotic stress tolerances are critical factors which can be enhanced by molecular breeding methods, including marker-assisted… CONTINUE READING
