(2007) Ono, Cuello. Biosystems Engineering. Read by researchers in: 50% Biological Sciences, 17% Earth Sciences. Microalgal biofixation of carbon dioxide (CO2) in photobioreactors is a promising strategy for CO2 mitigation, addressing the increased concerns over greenhouse gases (GHG). Previous studies on the... - http://www.mendeley.com/research/carbon-dioxide-mitigation-using-thermophilic-cyanobacteria/
The team from the Tulane University calls their new bacteria TU-103, and it is apparently the first bacteria found in nature that can convert cellulose directly into butanol. Meanwhile, researchers at the U.S. DOE are developing another biofuel microbe that can produce butanol from waste material, including agricultural waste.

Could This Bacterial Predator Be Harnessed To Mop Up Biofilms? Some new research on a bacterial predator that feeds on other bacteria may lead to new ammunition against biofilms. The research is published in the June 2011 issue of the Journal of Bacteriology.
Bacterial pathogens frequently form biofilms, which adhere to surfaces, and which are far more resistant to antibiotics than are individual bacteria. Biofilms are the culprits in a wide variety of infections, which range from minor problems to major chronic problems, to the lethal.
