Scientists are working on a synthetic biofuel that could be used in place of diesel and jet fuel. Scientists made the fuel by creating a new microbe from E. coli and genes from blue green algae and camphor trees. "We can now make biofuels that function exactly like fossil fuels and require absolutely no modifications to existing engine technology," said synthetic biologist John Love of the University of Exeter in the U.K.
