Discovery of the enzyme capable of mass produce biofuels.

Microalgae are a promising next-generation source of feedstocks for biofuel production with the potential to serve as a practical alternative to petroleum-based transportation fuels. Depending on the microalgal species, the oils produced vary from triacylglycerols to hydrocarbons. Hydrocarbon-based fuels are preferred over other biofuels, as they are highly compatible with existing petroleum...
