Can You Think of Bacteria as feeders on CO2?; Yes Here It is

The conversion of a heterotropic organism to a fully autotrophic seems impossible. But now it is possible to do so in a laboratory timescale. This is initiation but future is bright in this field. The problem of greenhouse gases is making all possibilities down, because of its high amount of production and its emission into the atmosphere. A more clear and close eye is today’s need to keep on the over-exploitation of resources. As it is impossible, so an alternative method is very necessary.

A group of scientists has now taken this target to achieve. They incorporated bacteria named as Escherichia coli to prepare all of its Carbon biomass solely from CO2. It is purely in Lab timescale. It can take years to come into full existance. But, still this is appreciated to have such achievements.

This study is available in 179th volume of Cell,Click here to read the full article.

Looking forward for more exciting revolution in this field. With the hope of this initiation, we can reduce the end point of climate change.
