The chip will let scientists study enzymes faster and more comprehensively than ever before. For much of human history, animals and plants were perceived to follow a different set of rules than […]

A new photoenzyme derived from microscopic algae uses blue light to catalyze the conversion of fatty acids, found in fats and oils, into alkanes and alkenes. The research conducted at the National Accelerator Laboratory is focused on enzymes – proteins to catalyze biochemical reactions – that are rarely driven by light. Scientists have identified only […]

Northwestern University synthetic biologists have developed a new rapid-prototyping system to accelerate the design of biological systems, reducing the time to produce sustainable biomanufacturing products from months to weeks. As global challenges like population growth and energy security intensify, the need for low-cost biofuels and bioproducts – like medicines and materials – produced using sustainable […]

University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and University of California, Davis chemists are one step closer to recreating nature’s most efficient machinery for generating hydrogen gas. Researchers from the Oregon Health and Science University also contributed to this study. This new development may help clear the path for the hydrogen fuel industry to move into a […]

Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology (TUAT) researchers leading an international collaboration have developed a two-step method to more efficiently break down carbohydrates into their single sugar components, a critical process in producing green fuel. The research group published their results in the American Chemical Society journal Industrial & Engineering Chemical Research. The breakdown process […]
