How to turn carbon dioxide into valuable, in-demand products

Carbon dioxide is a major contributor to climate change and a significant product of many human activities, notably industrial manufacturing. A major goal in the energy field has been to chemically convert emitted CO2 into valuable chemicals or fuels. But while CO2 is available in abundance, it has not yet been widely used to generate value-added products. Why not? Assistant professor Ariel Furst and her colleagues are looking to DNA to help guide the process.
