A team of researchers in Japan is looking into the genetic makeup of a freshwater algae called Botryococcus braunii with the hopes of using its abilities to produce biofuels. The latest findings suggest that the algae's high degree of DNA compatibility with other organisms makes it a good candidate for genetic engineering processes meant to accelerate biofuel development.
