Engineering Enzyme Pathways For Biofuel Development

SubTopics

Kinetics, Enzyme Catalysis

Featured Scientist
Description

Jingnan research focuses on converting carbon dioxide, an environmental pollutant, into biofuel. Jingnan explains how she engineers a carbon-storing microorganism into a biofuel production pathway. She discusses kinetic parameters she is able to change, such as using a more efficient enzyme (a catalyst) and increasing substrate concentration to speed up the production of biofuels.Search
