Scientists at BHU developing better strains of cyanobacteria using photoengineering and genetic engineering techniques
Cyanobacteria are major carbon dioxide and dinitrogen fixers and have emerged as potential candidates for sustainable production of 3G and 4G biofuels, valuable chemicals and pharmaceuticals (toxins, anticancerous compounds and natural sunscreens). Cyanobacteria have also shown their potential for sequestration of greenhouse gas carbon dioxide to decrease the impact of global climate change and pilot plants are being set up for this purpose in different countries.
