Fig. 3

The ethanol titer of C. thermocellum with different pyruvate decarboxylase candidates. Four colonies were selected for each candidate pdc gene and evaluated by batch fermentation in MTC-5 medium with 10 g/L cellobiose. Data for each colony is represented by a single point. 10 μg/mL thiamphenicol was added to maintain the plasmid. Strain LL1004 is wild type C. thermocellum. The box includes the 25th to 75th percentile of data; whiskers represent 1.5 times the interquartile range
