Personal Profile

Jeffrey G. Linger is a research scientist in the Applied Biology group within NREL's Renewable Resources and Enabling Sciences Center. Jeffrey joined NREL in 2007 as a postdoctoral fellow studying the production of biofuels. Specifically, Jeffrey uses molecular biology techniques to assess the feasibility of converting the microorganism Zymomonas mobilis into a consolidated bioprocessing organism through the expression and extracellular secretion of cellulolytic enzymes. Jeffrey's current research focuses on the metabolic engineering of Z. mobilis for use in biofuels production.
