The goal of this project is to modify the genome of Cyanothece 51142, a cyanobacteria species, to allow it to fix a variety of nitrogen oxide compounds that are major pollutants present in coal flue emissions. The S&T iGEM Team plans to clone and standardize genes from Pseudomonas aerugenosa and Escherichia coli that will allow Cyanothece 51142 to uptake and convert nitrogen oxides into ammonium, a major component of fertilizer. This could lead to a method to reduce polluting emissions while producing fertilizer to offset the costs of scrubbing the emissions.
