Abstract

Relationships between amylolytic activity and 1-step fermentation of starch to ethanol by strains of Endomycopsis fibuligera were investigated. A suitable strain was selected and conditions for the bioconversion of cassava starch to ethanol were optimized. From 230 yeast strains, strain NRRL 76 of E. fibuligera produced consistently higher levels of alpha-amylase and glucoamylase as well as ethanol from sugar and starch substrates. Strain NRRL 76 grew optimally at pH 6.0 and 30
