View Resource Bioprospecting for Cellulose-Degrading Microbes

This high school-college level activity screens for cellulase-producing microbes from environmental samples of the students' choice. Students prepare samples, isolate them on selective media, and screen for cellulase activity. Two methods are provided, one focusing on isolation of pure microbial strains, the other focusing on finding symbiotic communities of microbes. Click on the Bioprospecting...

View Resource Fermentation Challenge: Making Ethanol from Cellulose

This high school or beginning undergraduate level lab demonstration and inquiry activity will introduce students to the process of fermenting cellulosic biomass into cellulosic ethanol, along with the challenges researchers face in this area. The demonstration uses a Vernier probe or balloons to measure fermentation rates of different feedstocks to begin the discussion of why some carbohydrates...
