MU researchers using AI to make algae biodiesel cheaper and easier to produce

January 27, 2020 |

In Missouri, researchers at Missouri University have teamed with Donald Danforth Plant Science Center in St. Louis to use artificial intelligence in an effort to significantly reduce the cost of biodiesel production from algae by mapping the shapes and amino acids of proteins. With that information, bioengineers can then change the structure so it’s cheaper and easier to produce biodiesel. The project recently received a $167,797 DOE grant to fund the research for another three years.
