The 25th Silver Anniversary Symposium on Biotechnology for Fuels and Chemicals was a great success with a very impressive set of presentations and posters. Abstract links are still live from the "Program & List of Presentations" and "Schedule" buttons above. Proceedings publishing the final papers are available from the National Bioenergy Center (contact Jim Duffield) or Humana Press.

Thank you again to our sponsors for making this such an enjoyable and smooth running as well as professionally rewarding symposium.
