    About This Project

    Nitrogen-fixation for fertiliser production is extremely energy-intensive, accounting for 80% of energy use in agriculture. Nitrogen is essential for plant growth but cannot be directly accessed from the atmosphere by plants despite its abundance.

    Our goal is to engineer a bacterium called Pseudomonas Fluorescens, this bacteria can live in plant roots and will be able to attract other bacteria that make nitrogen from the atmosphere available to plants.
