Efficient Biofuel with Genetically Modified E. Coli Bacteria

According to an article in the Science Daily website, researchers have been able to develop a method of producing biofuels by genetically modifying the E. coli bacteria and making it into an efficient biofuel synthesizer. A team of researchers from UCLA Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science, made up of professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering James Liao, visiting professor Taizo Hanai and post doctoral fellow Shota Atsumi, modified key pathways in the E. coli bacteria…
