Anne-Marie Berger looks at the promise of getting fuel from algae and the research being led by the Danforth Plant Science Center. With American facing rising costs at the gas pump, finding new sources of energy has become a priority for research institutions, and the Danforth Center has received a stimulus grant to head research in this area. Berger talks with Dr. Richard Sayre about the prospects for using algae as a sustainable fuel source, and how soon we might be driving cars powered by gas made from algae.
