Development of cyanobacterial photosynthetic cell factories

Through deciphering and engineering of cyanobacterial photosynthetic metabolism network, the researchers have facilitated efficient photosynthetic conversion of carbon dioxide into biofuels and biochemicals, including ethanol, ethylene, sucrose, trehalose, glycerol glucoside, fatty alkanes, and fatty alcohols. These works have been published in Energy & Environmental Science, Metabolic Engineering, Biotechnology for Biofuels, et al.
