Fellow of the Royal Society of South Africa
Willem H. van Zyl mainly investigates Biochemistry, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Yeast, Cellulase and Fermentation. The concepts of his Saccharomyces cerevisiae study are interwoven with issues in Heterologous, Trichoderma reesei and Microbiology. His Yeast study combines topics in areas such as Pentose and Cellobiose.
His Cellulase research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Biotechnology, Cellulosic ethanol and Bioprocess. Willem H. van Zyl has researched Cellulose in several fields, including Clostridium phytofermentans, Phanerochaete and Aspergillus niger. The study incorporates disciplines such as Clostridium thermocellum, Cellodextrin, Pulp and paper industry and Enzymatic hydrolysis in addition to Microbial cellulose.
Willem H. van Zyl mainly focuses on Biochemistry, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Yeast, Fermentation and Cellulase. Willem H. van Zyl interconnects Secretion, Gene expression, Recombinant DNA and Bioprocess in the investigation of issues within Saccharomyces cerevisiae. His work on Saccharomyces as part of general Yeast research is often related to Shuttle vector, thus linking different fields of science.
The Fermentation study combines topics in areas such as Hydrolysis, Biofuel and Starch. His studies deal with areas such as Cellulosic ethanol and Enzymatic hydrolysis as well as Cellulase. Cellulosic ethanol is closely attributed to Microbial cellulose in his study.
Willem H. van Zyl spends much of his time researching Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Yeast, Biofuel, Food science and Fermentation. His Saccharomyces cerevisiae research integrates issues from Biorefinery, Starch and Bioprocess. His study in Yeast is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both L1, Heterologous, Peptide and Cellulase.
His Cellulase research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Cellulosic ethanol and Enzymatic hydrolysis. His Biofuel study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Bagasse, Pulp and paper industry, Biochemical engineering, Raw material and Biomass. His studies in Fermentation integrate themes in fields like Enzyme assay and Hydrolysis.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Yeast, Starch, Biofuel and Bioprocess. His Saccharomyces cerevisiae study is associated with Biochemistry. When carried out as part of a general Biochemistry research project, his work on Enzymatic hydrolysis, Cellulosic ethanol, Lignocellulosic biomass and Cellulase is frequently linked to work in Inhibitor resistance, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study.
His Starch research focuses on Fermentation and how it relates to Enzyme assay and Ethanol. His work carried out in the field of Biofuel brings together such families of science as Biomass, Brewing, Bio based and Biochemical engineering. Many of his studies on Bioprocess involve topics that are commonly interrelated, such as Cellulose.
