A new process developed by scientists at the Great Lakes Bioenergy Research Center enables greater production of squalene, a terpene with an array of uses in the biotechnology industry and as an energy-dense biofuel. Researchers increased plant production of the chemical by redirecting production to lipid droplets scaffolded to plastids in the cell.

What does it mean to foster an environment that truly feels welcoming? For Yiying Xiong, associate director of the Great Lakes Bioenergy Research Center, it all comes down to treating a team of coworkers like they are part of a family. Xiong spoke with us about her experiences nurturing these families in the hydropower industry and now academic research.
