This teaching resource looks at the field of biochemistry and explores research using microbes to produce renewable biofuel. Dr Alan Goddard, a senior lecturer in biochemistry at Aston University in the UK, and his team are working on the MeMBrane Project, a study focusing on how microbial cells can be grown on a range of ‘foods’ and how microbes could be used to replace fossil fuels. The resource looks at the type of microbial cells Dr Alan Goddard is looking at and considers the challenges he and his team face. It also looks at how Dr Goddard became a biochemist and offers advice to students looking to follow in his footsteps. In addition, it includes an activity sheet and discussion points – questions your students can answer in groups or individually.
