Engineers Studying The Use Of Microbes For Biofuel Production

[caption id="attachment_1306" align="alignright" width="256"] Scientists have to remove some of the bottlenecks in microbial metabolic pathways.[/caption] The by-products of many microbes have turned around to become useful products used by man as fuels, part of synthetic chemicals, drugs, and polymers. For example, anaerobic fermentation of some bacterial species yields biogas. The renewed interest in renewable transportation biofuels has prompted increased research focused on using microbial systems for biofuel production. The…
