Genetically engineered microorganisms are provided that produce products from the fatty acid biosynthetic pathway (fatty acid derivatives), as well as methods of their use.
Genetically engineered cells and microorganisms are provided that produce products from the fatty acid biosynthetic pathway (fatty acid derivatives), as well as methods of their use. The products are particularly useful as biofuels.
The invention provides isolated nucleic acids and isolated polypeptides involved in the synthesis of hydrocarbons and hydrocarbon intermediates. Homologs of, conservative variants of, and sequences having at least about 35% sequence identity with nucleic acids involved in the synthesis of hydrocarbo ...
Disclosed herein are various embodiments regarding the use of impure and/or unrefined alcohol in the production of fatty esters. Various production hosts that are capable of producing a fatty ester from an impure or unrefined alcohol are also disclosed.
The invention provides a genetically modified microorganism that acquires the ability to consume a renewable feedstock (such as cellulose) and produce products. This organism can be used to ferment cellulose, one of the most abundant renewable resources available, and produce products.
Described herein are methods for cracking a biocrude, particularly catalytically cracking a biocrude that primarily includes olefmic hydrocarbons. Also described herein are compositions and methods of producing such compositions that are useful as fuels or fuel production feedstock.
