Algae as a bio-feedstock

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Research on converting algae to fuel and other bioproducts is focused on the development of large-scale production methods and pushing the industry toward viable commercial operation. Transformation systems for C. reinhardtii have been developed. Transgenic Chlamydomonas strains can self-adjust light-harvesting antenna in response to changing light levels, which enables them to grow to higher cell densities. They can also accumulate complex mammalian proteins at high levels, such as antibody-toxin fusion proteins that could be used to treat infectious diseases.
