Professor of Biochemistry, Biophysics and Structural Biology Jamie H. D. Cate has found a way to increase the production of fuels and other chemicals from biomass fermented by yeast. Working through the Energy Biosciences Institute, Cate and a team of collaborators identified metabolic pathways in the fungus Neurospora crassa that are used to digest xylose, one of the most abundant sugars in hemicellulose. 

Dr. Corey Goodman, former MCB Professor of Neurobiology, will be returning Friday, May 22 as the speaker for the 2015 MCB Graduate Commencement ceremony.
