University of California turning bacteria into butanol biofuel factories

University of California, Berkeley, chemists have engineered bacteria to churn out a gasoline-like biofuel at about 10 times the rate of competing microbes, a breakthrough that could soon provide an affordable and “green” transportation fuel. The advance is reported in

Gene discovery could lead to healthier food, better biofuel production

Purdue University scientists have found the gene that is responsible for the production of the amino acid phenylalanine. This discovery could lead to processes to control the amino acid to boost plants’ nutritional values and produce better biofuel feedstocks. Natalia Dudareva, a
