Description

LONDON, Oct. 17 (Xinhua) -- By using synthetic biology, researchers are developing a more efficient and sustainable method to produce the next generation of bio-based jet fuels, which could be partly made from seawater, according to a study released on Thursday by The University of Manchester.

Supported by the U.S.-based Office of Naval Research Global (ONR), researchers from the university's Manchester Institute of Biotechnology (MIB) are carrying out this project.
