Clostridium beijerinckii reconstruction

Clostritidium beijerinckii is an attractive organism for biofuel production because it can naturally produce high yields of butanol from sugars. In order to better understand this process, we have constructed the first genome scale metabolic model of C. beijerinckii. This model serves as a platform to generate hypotheses for how to metabolically engineer new strains with improved butanol production.
