Brett Smith for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online As gardeners around the United States tend to their flowers or herbs, leaf-cutter ants are actively cultivating gardens of fungus and bacteria as a source of food and shelter. According to a new study in the journal Applied and Environmental Microbiology, a team of American researchers has found that the active enzymes in these ants´ gardens could be refined for biofuel applications. "All the enzymes that we found are...

Molecular Switch for Low Cost Biofuel
2013-06-03 06:58:24

Vienna University of Technology The Vienna University of Technology, genetic engineers have found a trick, thanks to which fungi can be used for the production of biofuels far more cost effectively than before Lignocellulosic waste such as sawdust or straw can be used to produce biofuel — but only if the long cellulose and xylan chains can be successfully broken down into smaller sugar molecules. To do this, fungi are used which, by means of a specific chemical signal, can be made...
