High-throughput Screening of Recalcitrance Variations in Lignocellulosic Biomass: Total Lignin, Lignin Monomers, and Enzymatic Sugar Release Stephen R. Decker1, Robert W. Sykes1, Geoffrey B. Turner1, Jason S. Lupoi1, Crissa Doepkke1, Melvin P. Tucker1, Logan A. Schuster1, Kimberly Mazza1, Michael E. Himmel1, Mark F. Davis1, Erica Gjersing1 1BioEnergy Science Center, National Renewable Energy Laboratory Plant cell wall structure and chemistry traits are evaluated to identify ideal feedstocks for biofuels and bio-materials. Standard methods have limitations when applied to large data sets. These high-throughput pretreatment, enzyme saccharification, and pyrolysis-molecular beam mass spectrometry methods compare large numbers of biomass samples with decreased experimental time and cost.
