New advances in tailoring extremophiles for bioenergy

Researchers from the University of Georgia and the BioEnergy Science Center have developed a DNA transformation technology for organisms in the Caldicellulosiruptor group, that can utilize biomass even at temperatures higher than 160 Fahrenheit. The team is working with a group of bacteria that can use biomass for growth and will use genetics to teach them to make ethanol.
