Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory researchers have discovered a way to modify microbes using the gene-editing tool CRISPR in a way that more efficiently produces a compound. According to the study, these findings will help increase and speed up bio-based material, fuel and chemical production.

Researchers at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, or Berkeley Lab, have found a more efficient technique to modify metabolic processes in microbes that has the potential to speed up biomanufacturing.
