- Advanced biofuels that target direct replacement of transportation fuels such as gasoline, diesels, and jet-fuels, have been developed due to rising petroleum costs and environmental concerns. We have focused on the production of advanced biofuels from pretreated biomass to replace the current gasoline, diesel, and aviation fuels using metabolically engineered a microbial cell factory. Corynebacterium glutamicum, a widely-known industrial bacterium for amino acid and varieties of biochemicals, was engineered by introducing biofuel producing pathway constructed in the BioBrick-formatted expression vector systems. Heterologous target genes were synthetized and optimized to produce a precursor of fuels candidates. A target advanced-fuel precursor is further converted to high energy density fuels via nanocatalytic processes. This work was supported by the National Research Foundation of Korea Grant funded by the Korean Government (MEST) (2013, University-Institute cooperation program) and ‘Creative Allied Program (CAP)’ through the Korea Research Council of Fundamental Science and Technology (KRCF) and Korea Institute of Science and Technology (KIST).
