Researchers at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst report their findings at the 113th General Meeting of the A... Read More
Microbiology is poised to make significant inroads towards reducing dependence on crude oil and petroleum-based products.
Join us at ASM headquarters to learn how we can harness the immense metabolic diversity of microbes to generate biofuels and other commodity chemicals from digesti... Read More
