  1. Note that transgenic poplar lines with more than one target gene (and accompanying transcript level) are listed in subsequent rows below the first target gene
  2. Standard deviation for n = 3 technical replicate fermentations shown in parenthesis for solubilization and fermentation products
  3. Further data on poplar samples and properties including carbohydrate composition, lignin properties, and enzymatic saccharification data is available in supplementary sections of [28]
  4. aBiomass samples in which technical replicate biomass samples were combined to obtain sufficient material quantities for this study. Values for biomass samples were averaged. Refer to Additional file 1: Table S1 for data on each biomass sample and calculation of average
  5. bPreviously published data from [28]
