    About This Project

    Our team seeks to engineer a micro organism that will
    produce the high-energy chemical butanol when the organism is fed cellulose. A mixture of 85% butanol and 15% gasoline produces a liquid fuel that can be used in current infrastructure and lowers our carbon footprint. By producing a cellulose based liquid biofuel we hope to shorten the carbon cycle and thereby directly combat climate change and address the growing global energy demand.
    Blast off!
