Genome Scalpel Invented for Industrial Microalgae to Efficiently Turn CO2 into Biofuel

(Chinese Academy of Sciences Headquarters/EurekAlert!)  A single-celled alga undergoes genome surgery to remove non-essential parts. This can lead to a most efficient cellular factory for producing sustainable biofuels from sunlight and carbon dioxide. Researchers from the Qingdao Institute of BioEnergy and Bioprocess Technology (QIBEBT) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS)
