Lawrence Lab and JBEI identify molecular mechanism in bacteria to help boost biofuel production

June 19, 2019 |

In California, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) scientists and collaborators at the Joint BioEnergy Institute have identified a molecular mechanism in bacteria that can be manipulated to promote tolerance to imidazolium ionic liquid (IIL) solvents, and therefore overcome a key gap in biofuel and biochemical production processes. The research appears in the Journal of Bacteriology. […]

Lawrence lab improves enzymes to boost sugar yields for biofuels

April 15, 2013 |

In California, researchers with the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory through support from the Energy Biosciences Institute have literally shed new light on cellulase catalysis by using an ultrahigh-precision visible light microscopy technique called PALM – for Photo-Activated Localization Microscopy. Researchers have found a way to improve the collective catalytic activity of enzyme cocktails that can […]
