Headline: Hopelessly peripatetic. Thoughts and actions ranging from post-Pasteurian microbiology, indiscriminate writing and post-digital media, various forms of performances thespian and corporate, the Long Now and a post-electronic age, and transforming natural philosophy in the 21st century.

Searching for practical microbes in the Amazon forest for the production of cellulosic ethanol. (In Portuguese). Brazil is a major producer of ethanol from sugar cane. Now they want to see if they can branch out to other sources of carbohydrates for ethanol production.

"A natural biorefinery in itself, the Q microbe, Clostridium phytofermentans, is an anaerobic organism with a unique combination of natural characteristics that dramatically streamline the production of cellulosic ethanol."
Though not sure if this is a recombinant organism - no reference to it, but choice use of the word "natural".

How do you isolate new cellulolytic genes from microbes in a cow rumen? Easy, poke a hole in the side of the cow (a fistula), throw in some bags of grass, pull out grass later and isolate bugs breaking down the grass. A great example of old-time microbiology and new-fangled metagenomic.
