About this Research Topic
This research topic welcomes for articles aiming to better understand the genetic basis behind Bioenergy production. It welcomes studies of genes and genomes of microbes that are already used in biorefineries such as yeasts, of bacteria and lower eukaryotes carrying potential for bioethanol, biobutanol, biodiesel, or biohydrogen production, and of microorganisms considered as promising new biocatalysts for alternative products. Welcomed will be genetic research focusing on whole-systems studies, on specific gene(s) function and regulation, on genetic and/or genomic tool development, on metabolic engineering, and on synthetic biology endeavors leading to strain optimization. Bioinformatic analyses and modeling pertaining to gene and regulatory network prediction are included. Research articles, reviews, commentaries and method papers strengthening knowledge in these directions are all of interest in this thematic forum. Their contribution is expected to add to emerging insights regarding the potential for microbial-derived energy production.
Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
