An oleaginous yeast platform for renewable 1-butanol synthesis based on a heterologous CoA-dependent pathway and an endogenous pathway

Abstract Background Microbial biofuel production provides a promising sustainable alternative to fossil fuels. 1-Butanol is recognized as an advanced biofuel and is gaining attention as an ideal green replacement for gasoline. In this proof-of-principle study, the oleaginous yeast Yarrowia lipolytic...
