The ability of bacteria to be genetically manipulated in a directed way has permitted the application of bacterial metabolism and gene expression to the creation of products useful in a wide variety of domains, including alternative energy generation, novel and manipulatable pathways for antibiotic synthesis, and synthesis of industrial intermediates. Participants will discuss engineering of bacteria to produce hydrogen gas, ethanol, anti-microbials and other useful products.
