Biomanufacturing Better Materials For A Post-Petroleum Future

Posted by in categories: biological, computing

Consider the room you are sitting in: From the injection-molded plastic of a computer mouse to the synthetic carpet fibers on the floor, you are surrounded by petroleum-derived products in your daily life. But what if there is a better way to produce the products we depend on with cleaner and greener materials?
