ABSTRACT
The article discusses the production of bioethanol which relies on yeast to convert the glucose in corn and other plants including high presence of ethanol can be harmful for yeast which restricts production of other plants. Topics include research studies to improve the tolerance of yeast to ethanol, toxicity being a major obstacle in the production of cost effective biofuel production.
