Clustered correlation matrix for S. cerevisiae Y945 fermentation data (black labels) and hydrolysate composition (red text labels). The plot was generated using the corrplot package in R with hclust (hierarchical clustering order). The size and color correspond to the direction and magnitude of the correlation. Correlations that were insignificant (p > 0.05) were not plotted. The process ethanol yield is the ratio of sugars initially present in the hydrolysate (glucose and xylose) to ethanol produced assuming 0.51 g ethanol/g sugars as the theoretical maximum. The metabolic yield is the ratio of sugars (glucose and xylose) consumed during fermentation to ethanol produced assuming 0.51 g ethanol/g sugars as the theoretical maximum
