Striking the Right Balance: JBEI Researchers Counteract Biofuel Toxicity in Microbes

May 11, 2011

Researchers at JBEI have created a library of microbial efflux pumps that reduce toxicity and boost production of biofuels in engineered strains of microbes. This library and the bioprospecting strategy behind it should serve as valuable new tools for the development of advanced biofuels and other areas of biotechnology as well.
