- ... Production of biofuels and bioenergy precursors by phototrophic microorganisms, such as microalgae and cyanobacteria, is a promising alternative to conventional fuels obtained from non-renewable resources. Several species of microalgae have been investigated as potential candidates for the production of biofuels, for the most part due to their exceptional metabolic capability to accumulate large q ...

- ... Microorganisms do not exist in isolation in the environment. Instead, they form complex communities among themselves as well as with their hosts. Different forms of interactions not only shape the composition of these communities but also define how these communities are established and maintained. The kinds of interaction a bacterium can employ are largely encoded in its genome. This allows us to ...

- ... Methylobacterium organophilum CZ-2 synthesized polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHAs) under nitrogen limitation with CH4 as carbon source and when either citrate or propionate was added as cosubstrates. The highest PHAs content (yPHA) in closed flasks was obtained in the CH4-citrate and CH4-propionate experiments attaining values of 0.82 and 0.68, respectively. M. organophilum CZ-2 cultivated in bioreactors ...
