The Science of Green: Bioprospecting

We’ve often heard that nature holds the solutions to many things. From various diseases to energy constraints, scientists have searched from the desert to the rain forest for nature’s solutions to today’s problems.

It should come as little surprise, then, to find that DOE researchers have become, in their own words, “bioprospectors.” These scientists are searching everything, including pond scum, for organisms with the “potential to grow like weeds and fuel the airplanes and automobiles of tomorrow.” Find out more about their work here, and be sure to watch the video below to learn more as well.
