Drop-In Biofuels

We research and optimize oleaginous microorganisms such as the yeast Yarrowia lipolytica in respect to their oil body formation capabilities and methods to transform these into a renewable gasoline replacements. Our second host, the Gram-positive bacterium Bacillus subtilis, is being optimized with the goal to produce hydrocarbons of varying length.
