Title: Holographic Optical Cell Manipulation for Automated Development of Improved Yeast Strains for Ethanol Production
Agency: USDA
Contract: 2006-33610-16796
Award Amount: $79,998.00
 

Abstract:

Potentially insufficient corn stock supplies make necessary the development of industrial yeast strains for converting alternative cellulosic materials for renewable fuel sources. This project investigates the feasibility and develops the capability of using Holographic Optical Trapping as an automated manipulation tool for yeast cells, to characterize and evaluate yeast strains.
