Optimizing the saccharification of sugar cane bagasse using dilute phosphoric acid followed by fungal cellulases.
In this study, we found many potential lignocellulolytic degraders harbouring many different catalytic domains (up to 14 different catalytic domains) that function for all lignocellulose pretreatment and hemicellulose, cellulose saccharification. These degraders were affiliated in both Bacteroidetes and Firmicutes phyla.
The calculation of the amount of monosaccharides (glucose and xylose) hydrolyzed from the pretreated biomass and the enzymatic saccharification yields excludes the amount of these sugars from the solution of the cellulase.

Biomass Saccharification. To see whether coexpression of the Cg1 and glgC improves saccharification efficiency, the biomass was harvested at maturity, dried in an oven at 60[degrees]C for two days, and ground to powder.
Xylanases are extensively used in the paper and pulp industry, as well as in baking, animal feed, biofuels production, fruit and vegetable processing, manufacture of bread, food, and drinks, textiles, xylitol production, saccharification of agricultural, and industrial and municipal wastes among other utilities [5, 8].
