More Details

The university design microbial pathways to convert CO2 to fuels via the archaeal reductive acetyl-CoA pathway. One project involves genetic engineering and regulation to convert CO2 and hydrogen into short-chain alkanes. The second project involves direct electron transfer via multi-heme cytochromes to reversibly interconvert alkanes to electricity, a process that mimics the anode of a methane fuel cell at cold temperatures.
