Self-regulating microbe could boost biofuel yields, study shows

04/2/2012 | MIT Technology Review online

Scientists at the University of California, Berkeley, have developed a strain of E. coli bacteria that can adjust to varying levels of biological inputs, potentially boosting its biofuel output by threefold, according to a report in Nature Biotechnology. The microbe's "sensor-regulator system" could help drive down the cost of advanced biofuels by improving yields, the report said.
