ABSTRACT
The article reports on the research and development partnership between Syngenta and Diversa that focus on the discovery and development of novel enzymes that will convert pre-treated cellulosic biomass economically to mixed sugars. The agreement allows Diversa to independently develop and commercialize fermentation-based enzyme combinations. Syngenta will have exclusive access to enzymes from the platform of Diversa to express in plants for cost-effective biofuels production.
