In Washington, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory researchers have devised a way to engineer yeast to produce itaconic acid—a valuable commodity chemical—using data integration and supercomputing power as a guide, helping advance economically attractive replacements for fossil fuels. Itaconic acid has enormous potential as a renewable chemical building block. It could substitute for some fossil-fuel-derived products. […]
