Coates at the EBI

ebi logoJohn Coates is director of the Microbially Enhanced Hydrocarbon Recovery (MEHR) program at the Energy Biosciences Institute.

The program involves a broad diversity of metabolic processes that act either individually or cooperatively to improve hydrocarbon production and energy yields, and reduce the environmental footprint.

 An in-depth understanding of these metabolic processes and the controlling parameters comes from focused interdisciplinary research into model organisms or communities known to perform the relevant functions.
