Microbes reprogrammed to ooze oil for renewable biofuel

obial genetic manipulation, assembled at the Biodesign Institute. "I don't think any group would have the capacity to do this as fast," he said.

Professor Roy Curtiss agrees, noting that "the seminal advance has been to combine a number of genetic modifications and enzyme activities previously described in other bacteria and in plants in the engineered cyanobacteria strains along with the introduction of newly discovered modifications to increase production and secretion of fatty acids. The results to date are encouraging and we are confident of making further improvements to achieve enhanced productivity in strains currently under construction and development. In addition, optimizing growth conditions associated with scale-up will also improve productivity."

The team, which includes researchers Daniel Brune and Wim Vermaas, is also optimistic that significantly higher fatty acid yields will be obtainable, as research continues.

The research opens the door to practical use of this promising source of clean energy.
