Fig. 5

Expression levels of selected genes in several strains of T. saccharolyticum. Each panel shows expression data from each strain for a given gene. Expression data are from RNAseq measurements, normalized to adjust for the length of each gene and total number of reads mapped for each library. Error bars represent one standard deviation, n = 2–4. Bars are colored based on the ethanol yield of the strain. Blue bars indicate strains with high ethanol production (yield ≥ 75% of theoretical maximum) and gray bars indicate low ethanol production (yield ≈ 50% of theoretical maximum, similar to wild type)
