Scientists are learning how bacterial nanofactories are constructed in nature. Recent experiments show we could engineer their building blocks into new structures, for useful applications.By Igor Houwat, Eric Young
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.By Igor Houwat, Kun Wang, Christoph Benning
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.By By Igor Houwat, Layne Cameron, Markus Sutter; Banner image by Markus Sutter, Kerfeld lab
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.By By Igor Houwat, Yang Yang
Introducing MultispeQ, an affordable and sophisticated scientific instrument that measures plant health and photosynthetic parameters.By By Igor Houwat, David Kramer; Banner image by photosynq.org
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.By By Igor Houwat; Banner image by MSU University Communcations
Derek Fedeson from the Ducat lab has designed a system to attach cyanobacteria, also known as blue-green algae, to yeast and other surfaces.
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.By By Igor Houwat, Bradley Abramson, Danny Ducat; Banner image by Joey Kyber, Pexels license
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.
The technology is featured alongside various new tools that are transforming marine science, as researchers rush to understand how coral reefs are affected by overfishing, pollution, global warming and ocean acidification.

By explaining a photosynthetic peculiarity in switchgrass, MSU researchers from the Walker lab may have unlocked even more of the plant’s potential.
Researchers from the Vermaas lab created a more efficient tool to solve the problem of ring piercings in molecular simulations. This work is published in Biomolecules.
Complicated sets of biological data can be challenging to extrapolate meaningful information from. Wanting to find a better way to look at this data led Berkley Walker, assistant professor at the MSU-DOE Plant Research Laboratory, to team up with statistician and Assistant Professor Chih-Li Sung from the Department of Statistics and Probability.
