Production of lipid from depolymerised lignocellulose using the biocontrol yeast , Rhodotorula minuta : The fatty acid profile remains stable irrespective of environmental conditions

The oleaginous yeast Rhodotorula minuta has been used previously as a biocide agent and for the production of β-carotene. In addition, R. minuta has been shown to produce up to 40% lipids, while demonstrating a faster growth rate than the similar oleaginous yeasts; Lipomyces starkeyii and Rhodotorula glutinis. In this study this promising yeast was… CONTINUE READING
