UI scientists' small discovery has big "green" potential—and Iowa roots

The Internet is awash in suggestions of small ways to go green. You really want to talk small, though? Call Andrew Lamm and Jack Rosazza. The University of Iowa scientists are going green on a cellular level.

Rosazza, professor emeritus of medicinal and natural products chemistry, and Lamm, visiting assistant professor of chemistry and research scholar, have identified and named a bacterial species that could be used in greener, cleaner ways of producing renewable fuels and biorenewable chemicals.

The bacterium, Nocardia iowensis, is so named to reflect its Iowa roots.
