- 1. A new chloroplast 'app' for making biofuels
In addition to doing photosynthesis, the chloroplast is the source of up to 10% of seed oil production in plants. Scientists are experimenting with harvesting that oil to make biofuels.
- 2. [VIDEO] Our first ever look at bacterial organelle shells
In a new Science publication, The Kerfeld lab show us the details of bacterial organelle shells for the first time ever, making it easier to target them for medical or renewable energy applications.
- 3. Squeezing oil out of plants and into your gas tank: it's hard.
When the Benning lab tried a technique for producing plant biofuels, an unexpected result led to an increase in our basic knowledge of plant biology.
- 4. Unpacking a new bacterial mini-factory
The new compartment, widely spread among different kinds of bacteria, might be reassembled to someday sustainably produce “green” chemicals, medicines, and renewable energy.
- 5. From the lab to the world: solving big problems in agriculture and energy
Introducing MultispeQ, an affordable and sophisticated scientific instrument that measures plant health and photosynthetic parameters.
- 6. Power Plants: Kramer lab featured in MSU President's 2016 Report
The 90-second clip is part of a series showcasing MSU's abilities in anticipating global challenges. The Kramer lab focuses on understanding photosynthesis in real time and in dynamic environments.
- 7. Molecular velcro boosts microalgae's potential in biofuel industrial applications
Derek Fedeson from the Ducat lab has designed a system to attach cyanobacteria, also known as blue-green algae, to yeast and other surfaces.
- 8. MSU students participate in premier synthetic biology competition
A PRL grad student reflects on MSU's first participation at iGEM, an international competition encouraging students to solve real-world challenges through genetically engineered biological systems.
- By Eric Young
- 9. Managing photosynthesis' traffic jams
The Ducat lab has coaxed a lab-grown cyanobacteria to efficiently make and export sugar, a technique which could someday lead to greater biofuel production at lower cost.
- 10. 'Dialing in the lipidome'
In the ongoing quest for healthier lifestyles and environmental sustainability, one of the biggest solutions might also be one of the tiniest: lipids. Think biofuels, cancer research, or even producing fish oils in plants.
