    Background: The major challenges associated with the fermentation of lignocellulosic hydrolysates are the reduction in the operating cost and minimizing the complexity of the process. Zymomonas mobilis biofilm has been emerged to resolve these complexities. Biofilm has been reported to tolerate to the toxic inhibitors and easily manipulated toward the cell recycle through the cell immobilization. Results: Z.mobilisZM4 and TISTR 551were able to develop biofilms onDEAE cellulose under the differences in the morphologies. Z. mobilis ZM4 developed ...
