Converting natural gas to liquid transportation fuels via biological organisms
Date:11/18/2013

and our work at the Joint BioEnergy Institute (JBEI), Sandia has proven its ability to express proteins that are difficult to express," Simmons said. The labs also possess engineering and modeling tools and the ability to build high-throughput custom enzymes assays, significant proficiencies that can lead to better performance in enzymes. Few research organizations, said Simmons, offer that package of technical capabilities to tackle a problem like this one.

Simmons acknowledges that meeting the objectives will not be a simple endeavor.

"People have been trying to express this class of enzymes for a couple of decades," he says, "so this definitely won't be a slam dunk. It's been a confounding scientific challenge for the research community, and this is a notoriously difficult class of proteins. But we have the collective experience and capabilities at Sandia to figure it out."
