This video produced by Teachers' Domain features Cathy Drennan, Professor of Chemistry and Biology at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Cathy explains that her research focuses on microorganisms that live off carbon dioxide, one of several greenhouse gases that are widely believed to accelerate global warming. Specifically, Cathy is investigating how a protein inside these microorganisms converts carbon dioxide into energy. Ultimately, Cathy hopes humans might apply what they learn from microorganisms to remove carbon dioxide from the environment.

The Teachers' Domain Biotechnology Collection is a collaboration of WGBH Educational Productions, WGBH Interactive, and WGBH Media Library. Major funding for this project is provided by the Amgen Foundation.
