Schematic diagram of the vanillin-sensing cell (VSC). The reporter plasmid construct comprises the vGFP gene cloned downstream of the vanillin-inducible promoter yeiW. The presence of vanillin results in a readily detectable fluorescence phenotype. For enzyme screening applications, any vanillin generated through extracellular degradation of lignin would activate the genetically encoded biosensor
