Magnificent Microbes: The Digest’s 2019 Multi-Slide Guide to Targeted Microbial Development


The industry is always on the look for microbial pathways that are capable of producing high carbon efficiency intermediates that are amenable to economic bioconversion, separation, and catalytic upgrading to hydrocarbon fuels and chemicals. At the recent DOE BETO 2019 Project Peer Review, Min Zhang and Michael Himmel from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, shared how they are working on this and how this project develops and improves metabolic pathways and strains that result in cost-competitive, robust biological conversion routes to intermediates, and more.
