Engineering Thermophiles for Biofuel Production

The goal of this project is to develop a thermophilic bacterium for the production of lignocellulosic biofuels. Towards these aims, we have previously developed a suite of genetic tools for engineering the thermophiles from the genus Geobacillus. These tools are being applied to develop Geobacillus for fuel and enzyme productions (started in 2012)
