High-carbon fed-batch fermentation of R. toruloides. Bioreactor cultivation of strain BIS3 in (a) alkaline hydrolysate (b) SD medium with glucose. Left panels: lines represent dry cell weight (DCW), bars represent bisabolene titers. Bisabolene titers were measured three times per time point, average value is shown. Right panels: measured glucose (red) and xylose (black) concentration profiles. At each time point, 10 mL of the culture was sampled. After separation, the dodecane layer was used for bisabolene measurement. 5 mL of the aqueous layer was used for the measurement of DCW
