Title: Engineering gene circuits (logic gates) in microbes for bioelectricity generation in microbial fuel cells.
Authors: Yeo, Zen Kyn.
Keywords: DRNTU::Engineering
Issue Date: 2013
Abstract: Microbial fuel cell (MFC) is a promising green and sustainable technology for production of clean energy from organic wastes. However the most significant bottleneck for the industrial application of MFC is its low electricity output by microbes. This project aims to genetically engineer Shewanella to boost MFC's bioelectricity output efficiency. The biological gene pathways that involved in MFC are electron transfer chains, biofilm formation genes, and cell-cell communication gene networks, etc. We will identify the most important genes for our genetic engineering of microbes.
