Fermentation products from various organisms with deletions of their hfs genes. Strains were grown in MTC-5 medium (C. thermocellum) or MTC-6 medium (other strains) on 5 g/l (14.7 mM) cellobiose. For all products, the maximum theoretical yield is 4 mol product per mole cellobiose consumed. Error bars represent one standard deviation, n ≥ 3
