Title: Lighting the way to bioproducts: Smart microbial biosensors for conversion pathway design

Abstract

For several years, Los Alamos scientists have been taking advantage of the molecular machinery within microbial cells to produce fuel precursors and bioproduct building blocks. Today, they are improving this process by adding a biosensor to the microbes that will use fluorescence to tell them how efficiently the product is made—thus enabling high throughput screening to increase overall yield.
