Life technologies comes up with a bio-fuel research using genetic engineering

Life Technology comes up with a bio-fuel research using genetic engineering which holds the key to resolve the issue of food security. Engineering microorganisms to convert complex feed stocks into Bio-fuel which holds a tremendous promise. Algae have recently received a lot of attention for being a new biomass source for production of renewable energy.

Bio-ethanol and Bio-diesel are the predominant types of Bio-fuel in India using the fermentation of Molasses to produce ethanol and chemical transformation of Vegetable oils to produce Biodiesel. The challenge with these processes is that their growth and scalability risks eating into arable land, often fueling a debate on food security.Bio-fuel research using genetic engineering holds the key to resolving this issue.

Mr. Devashish Ohri, MD SA, Life Technologies says, "Life Tech & SG Bio fuels Inc. have completed genome sequencing the Jatropha cruces genome to 100x coverage, using the Sold 4.0 System. The sequence significantly accelerates the identification of Key trails for the oilseeds-producing crop and advances its development, because science fuels hope for a sustainable tomorrow.Life Technologies biotechnology products and services, from instruments to everyday lab essentials, are created by scientists, for scientists.
