Cellulosic feedstocks from biological harvests (such as timber, prairie grass, and corn stover) or industrial–urban waste have been proposed as a source for the production of energy in the form of fermentation-produced ethanol biofuel.

This installment of "Chemometrics in Spectroscopy" illustrates the various graphical ways used to observe and interpret comparative clinical quantitative measurement methods.
