Microbial manufacturing: Genetic engineering breakthrough for urban farming

Source: Science Daily

Researchers have developed a new technology that revolutionizes the creation of genetic material, enabling drastically accelerated genetic engineering of microbes that can be used to manufacture chemicals used for urban farming. The new Guanine/Thymine (GT) DNA assembly technology will accelerate the creation of microbial factories, which are key to producing nutrients and natural pesticides for urban farming.
