Enabling Technologies

Better Tools,
Better Combinations

The BioEnergy Science Center (BESC) seeks to develop low-recalcitrance, viable switchgrass and poplar lines and improved consolidated bioprocessing (CBP) organisms to facilitate the cost-effective conversion of biomass to cost-competitive biofuels. In this endeavor, BESC has developed a suite of Enabling Technologies. These technologies include characterization and computational modeling efforts, which focus on developing and applying chemical, immunological, physical, and imaging methods to characterize biomass. The resulting information is used to build models to identify relationships between biomass structure and recalcitrance and to test the models in the design and evaluation of advanced pretreatment systems.

BESC researchers are using computational modeling to gain a molecular-level understanding of the plant cell wall and its major components, including cellulose (green) and lignin (brown). Here, the enzyme cellulase (orange) catalyzes cell wall breakdown. [Illustration courtesy Thomas Splettstoesser, www.scistyle.com, for Oak Ridge National Laboratory]

Other enabling technologies developed by BESC to support and enhance feedstock and CBP research have facilitated rapid and deep analyses of samples and data and provide new insights into the nature of recalcitrance. These tools include high-throughput (HTP) assays for determining the recalcitrance properties of tens of thousands of feedstock samples. The information obtained from HTP pipelines for pretreatment, digestibility, and chemistry has enabled plant scientists to discover improved plant lines and single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) that link genotypic variation to cell wall chemistry in natural populations of poplar and switchgrass. Additionally, tests that integrate enhanced-biomass grasses with cellulolytic microorganisms (i.e., capable of breaking down cellulose) are showing greater effectiveness in conversion and biofuel production, supporting a BESC hypothesis that minimal to no pretreatment may be possible for some conversion regimes.

BESC Progress Snapshot: Enabling Technologies

2007: Where Research Was Then

  • Analyses of biomass composition required ~5 g per sample and over two weeks' effort
  • Submicron analyses for catalytic imaging and chemical signatures of biomass were not established
  • Limited polysaccharide epitope antibodies were just beginning to be used for imaging
  • Very large biological datasets were genomic and primarily used in medical screening fields, not in bioenergy

Where Research Is Now

  • High-throughput pipeline for analyses of biomass composition and sugar release for thousands of samples per year at 4 mg per sample
  • Glycome profiling now medium throughput and automated; also validated for analyses of cell wall structure
  • Establishment of experimental and computational protocols for high-performance proteomics
  • Use of computational modeling to increase understanding of lignin biosynthesis and polymerization
  • Integration of modified feedstocks with engineered microbes
  • Metabolomics analysis coupled with genetic information to identify metabolite-gene associations
  • Submicron analyses developed for in situ biomass conversion imaging and for chemical signatures

Mark Davis

Enabling Technologies Lead

Dr. Mark Davis, a researcher at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, is focused on integrating multivariate statistical data analysis and spectroscopic methods such as nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and pyrolysis-molecular beam mass spectrometry (pyMBMS) to follow changes in plant cell wall chemistry due to transgenic modification. He has developed pyMBMS methods to rapidly analyze cell wall chemistry and teamed with plant geneticists to use the results of these analyses to identify quantitative trait loci (QTLs) in poplar and loblolly pine. He has also developed several NMR methods to characterize pyrolysis oil and liquid products from lignin.
