dc.description.abstractClostridium acetobutylicum P262 is an endospore forming Gram-positive obligate anaerobe which has been used for the industrial production of acetone and butanol. Strains of C. acetobutylicum have been reported to exhibit some activity towards cellulosic and hemicellulosic substrates. The aim of this thesis was to establish a genebank of C. acetobutylicum P262 DNA in Escherichia coli and to isolate and characterise genes encoding enzymes which show activity towards hemicellulose and cellulose.en_ZA
