At the recently-held Society of Industrial Microbiology and Biotechnology (SIMB) Annual Meeting, Joule presented the results of our systems-based approach to increasing photosynthetic efficiency. This work includes important achievements in bioburden management. In the industrial biotechnology field, the challenge of contamination is all too familiar. Uninvited organisms will compromise productio... read more

The 95% Carbon Switch

Think of Joule’s catalyst as a single-cell fuel factory. In order for this factory to be highly productive, it must divert nearly all of its energy away from growth and into fuel production. Joule was the first to engineer such a mechanism in a photosynthetic microorganism, and we invented the genome engineering tools to make it possible. Having started from scratch, we’ve reached a new milest... read more
