Abstract

This chapter explores the taxonomy and physiology of Zymomonas mobilis, an anaerobic, gram-negative bacterium that converts glucose to ethanol via the Entner-Doudoroff pathway. It is concluded that Z. mobilis has a range of advantageous features that make it a promising organism for development in the industrial production of alcohol.
