Article

Proterro engineered cyanobacteria from the group that includes SynechococcusSynechococcus and Synechocystis Synechocystis to secrete sucrose in a continuous, high-yield process, and the genetically modified cyanobacteria are patent protected. The engineered bacteria require only water, carbon dioxide, sunlight and nutrients to produce sucrose. The sucrose can be used in biofuels and biochemicals.
