Within the last several years, there has been a rapidly growing interest in developing biofuels. Much of this interest has been spurred by a need to find renewable sources of energy to partially replace petroleum, while mitigating levels of greenhouse gases. So far, biofuel production has been based mainly on Zea mays, which has resulted in several economic and social problems. Therefore, a new strategy and basic research aiming to increase the efficiency of currently applied or alternative methods of manufacturing plant cellulose-based biofuels and of (de)cross-linking cellulose into lignin polymers in the cell wall are needed for the scientific community. New methods are also needed for breeding new biofuel crops and for characterizing biochemical and genetic lignocellulose synthesis and storage processes, so as to support emerging biofuel products with enhanced and manageable lignocellulosic chemical profiles.
