Description

Development of microbial strains and process for the production of advanced biofuels such as butanol and gasoline will be pursued by employing systems metabolic engineering. Also, the use of carbon dioxide as a raw material will be pursued in addition to the use of traditional non-food biomass as a substrate. General systems metabolic engineering strategies will be employed, but specific strategies will be designed and employed.
