CyanoFuels started as a DOE-funded LDRD project. The purpose of CyanoFuels is to engineer cyanobaceria for direct photosyntheitc converison of CO2 to advanced biofuels.
The main objectives in CyanoFuels are to:
Enhance and modify endogenous alkane biosynthesis pathways in cyanobacteria.
Install heterologous fuel pathways in the cyanobacterium Synechocystis 6803 (S. 6803).
Enhance phtosynthesis in S. 6803 by increasing CO2 uptake.
Characterize carbon partitioning in cyanobacteria between assimilatino of CO2 via the Calvin-Benson cycle and incoroporation of CO2 into inorganic carbonate minerals such as calcium carbonate (CaCO3).
