Algae research offers promise for bio-based chemical precursors

01/8/2013 | United Press International

Researchers at the University of California, Davis, reported that they have genetically modified blue-green algae to produce chemicals that can be easily turned into biofuels and other bio-based products. The researchers successfully produced 2.4 grams of 2,3 butanediol per liter of growth medium from the algae, the biggest yield so far for bacteria-derived chemicals.
