KQED’s Quest Features JBEI and EBI Scientists

November 16, 2011

QUEST, the award-winning multimedia science and environment series created by KQED, broadcast a story about advanced biofuels that featured both the Joint BioEnergy Institute (JBEI) and the Energy Biosciences Institute, two multi-institutional partnerships in which Berkeley Lab is a key member. JBEI’s Jay Keasling and Greg Bokinsky, and EBI’s Chris Somerville, were all interviewed for the story which focused on the recent development of an e.coli strain that can consume switchgrass and synthesize gasoline, diesel and jet fuel.
