Non-fermentative pathways for synthesis of branched-chain higher alcohols as biofuels
Global energy and environmental problems have stimulated increased efforts towards synthesizing biofuels from renewable resources. Compared to the traditional biofuel, ethanol, higher alcohols offer… Expand

We develop a method, called network component analysis, for uncovering hidden regulatory signals from outputs of networked systems, when only a partial knowledge of the underlying network topology is available. Expand
Metabolic engineering of Escherichia coli for 1-butanol production.
Compared to ethanol, butanol offers many advantages as a substitute for gasoline because of higher energy content and higher hydrophobicity. Typically, 1-butanol is produced by Clostridium in a… Expand

Fishes suspended in water are subject to the complex nature of three-dimensional flows. Often, these flows are the result of abiotic and biotic sources that alter otherwise uniform flows, which then… Expand
Direct photosynthetic recycling of carbon dioxide to isobutyraldehyde
Global climate change has stimulated efforts to reduce CO2 emissions. One approach to addressing this problem is to recycle CO2 directly into fuels or chemicals using photosynthesis. Here we… Expand
Issues in cDNA microarray analysis: quality filtering, channel normalization, models of variations and assessment of gene effects.
We consider the problem of comparing the gene expression levels of cells grown under two different conditions using cDNA microarray data. We use a quality index, computed from duplicate spots on the… Expand
Metabolic engineering of Escherichia coli for 1-butanol and 1-propanol production via the keto-acid pathways.
Production of higher alcohols via the keto-acid intermediates found in microorganism's native amino-acid pathways has recently shown promising results. In this work, an Escherichia coli strain that… Expand
Metabolic engineering of cyanobacteria for 1-butanol production from carbon dioxide.
Production of chemicals and fuels directly from CO(2) is an attractive approach to solving the energy and environmental problems. 1-Butanol, a chemical feedstock and potential fuel, has been produced… Expand
