    4 of 15 projects propose biological conversion of methanol/methane to butanol, but none of these involves M. extorquens AM1 according to the descriptions. Instead, they prefer transferring the methanol utilization pathway to an anaerobic organism for fermentation. It is interesting to speculate their strategies and host organism.
