Sugars from seaweed for ethanol

A team of scientists from Bio Architecture Lab, has developed an engineered yeast that can efficiently metabolize the sugars in seaweed and ferment them into ethanol. Bio Architecture is a California-based company focused on the production of biofuels and biochemicals from macroalgae (seaweed) with the application of synthetic biology and enzyme design. The study "Efficient ethanol production from brown macroalgae sugars by a synthetic yeast platform" was published in Nature
