11:32 AM MST | November 19, 2013 | Francinia Protti-Alvarez
Researchers at Sandia National Laboratories (SNL; Albuquerque, NM) will use their expertise in protein expression, enzyme engineering, and high-throughput assays as part of a multiproject, $34-million effort by the Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) aimed at developing advanced biocatalyst technologies that can convert natural gas to liquid fuel for transportation, SNL has announced. The broad goal is to have another source of energy in the United States that does not have to be imported and could lead to lower carbon monoxide emissions than...
