About This Project
Fossil fuels are unsustainable and damaging to the environment. Photosynthetic organisms use only sunlight and CO2 to create fuel for themselves. But without the right tools to harness its full potential, this valuable natural process remains largely untapped. That's why we are developing a genetically engineered photosynthetic bacteria that is self-sustaining and makes mass amounts of biofuels as a cost-effective and environmentally friendly alternative to current means of energy production.
