Microbes in Alternative Energy

Microbes in alternative energy generally focuses on the interface between microbiology and chemical engineering to harness naturally evolved microbial processes to convert sunlight into useful products.  Researchers are investigating the growth characteristics of algae in hopes that we can learn unique metabolic functions that can be exploited for commercial biofuel and specialty bioproducts production etc. Microbes have adapted in different environments which can be used in different solutions. Microbes can be used to convert into sunlight, carbon dioxide, and nitrogen into a renewable fuel source etc. Algae-based products can be found anywhere from cosmetics to nutrients to pigments.  And as they grow fast, they can be used for photosynthetic organisms to produce biofuels, specialty chemicals, food, and feed.
