Cellulose number-average degree of polymerization (DPn) for “low S/G” and “high S/G” Populus, before and after CBP bioconversion. In both phenotypes, cellulose chain length increased slightly after fermentation; however, differences in cellulose properties between the two feedstock are not particularly significant (left); the ratio of crystalline to amorphous cellulose showed no significant differences between the two Populus phenotypes (right)
