Biodiesel production is an emerging renewable fuel technology. By using microbial consortia, the biosynthetic pathway can be divided-up among multiple microbial populations to create more efficient production processes. The mixed populations are controlled by synthetic interspecies communication circuits, and the consortia metabolism can be engineered to optimize available biomass utilization.
