ASU researchers are developing optimized versions of cyanobacteria to produce biofuel.
ASU scientists are working to make cost-effective, renewable fuel from algae.
Where some people see slime, Milt Sommerfeld and his colleagues see fuel and food. They believe algae can provide solutions to some of the trickiest environmental problems looming right in front of us.
By crystallizing and imaging photosystem I, scientists are learning how the 2.5-billion-year-old process of photosynthesis actually works.
Cyanobacteria invented a perfect way to extract energy from the sun more than 2 billion years ago. Wim Vermaas thinks these busy bacteria would make an excellent biofuel.
Photosynthesis may hold the key to curing humans of their addiction to oil and other fossil fuels.
