Abstract

Through genetic modications, strain selection and novel culturing techniques; several strains of cyanobacteria have been developed that are capable of synthesizing and secreting large amounts of cellulose, glucose, and/or sucrose. Through these products biofuels can be produced. Join us on a discussion of this process and the potential capabilities of biofuel production.
