U.S. Synthetic Biology Technique Triples Biodiesel Yield

3:22 AM MDT | March 28, 2012 | Alex Scott

A technique developed by researchers from the Joint BioEnergy Institute (JBEI; San Francisco Bay Area, CA), is able to optimise the performance of microbes to generate a target molecule while they are still in a bioreactor. In tests, the technique tripled the yield from microbes designed to generate biodiesel.   The novel synthetic biology technology, dubbed a dynamic sensor-regulator system DSRS), enabled the researchers from JBEI to detect metabolic changes in microbes while the microbes are converting carbohydrates into fatty-acid based fuels – such...
