Publications

When it comes to interdisciplinary collaboration, the titles of GLBRC publications speak for themselves. Each new year of operation has seen more publications from multiple labs that span our research themes, accelerating the Center's production of the basic research that generates technology to convert cellulosic biomass to advanced biofuels and bioproducts.
