Recombinant Gram-Positive Microorganism Growing on Cellulose asas the Sole Carbon Source in Defined Media

This invention provides the genetic engineering technologies and the defined media to convert gram-positive microorganisms for a low-cost, consolidated bio-processing (CBP) platform. This technology can be applied for producing advanced biofuels and other bio-based products with lignocellulosic material as feedstock in the defined media without any expensive organic nutrients and cellulases.
