Microalgae are promising feedstock for fuels and chemicals because many species possess the ability to grow rapidly and synthesize large amounts of storage neutral lipids from sunlight and carbon dioxide. They can be cultivated on non-arable land with nonpotable… Continue reading QIBEBT Unveils Genome-wide Transcriptional Regulation Network of Oleaginous Microalgae Nannochloropsis
PUNE: The discovery of a new species of macroalgae along the coast at south Goa could open up vast reserves of biofuel besides providing raw material for anti-cancer drugs.
A variety of macro algae was last discovered some 45 years back in… Continue reading New algae species could provide valuable biofuel
Local residents sometimes knock on the front door of Solarvest (P.E.I.) Inc.’s new Summerville facility, wondering what is happening inside.
Acquired in 2013, the 30,000-square-foot building houses production and R&D… Continue reading Alternative energy from ancient sources
The rise of oxygen is one of the biggest puzzle in Earth’s history. Our planet’s atmosphere started out oxygen-free. Then, around 3.5 billion years ago, tiny microbes called cyanobacteria (or blue-green algae) learned out to carry out photosynthesis… Continue reading A new study links continents and plate tectonics to the rise of oxygen on Earth
A team of USC Dornsife biologists affiliated with the USC Wrigley Institute for Environmental Studies is working on a $1.2 million study of marine organisms that are the microscopic equivalent of the Venus flytrap… Continue reading Venus flytrap of the sea
[Netherlands] Four years after the first optimistic calculations, the experimental cultivation of algae appears to be meeting expectations. This is based on experiments at the Wageningen research facility AlgaePARC in the Netherlands. Continue reading Algae cultivation profitable by 2025
A team of young researchers at the Centre for Biosciences of Central University of Punjab here have identified a new species of green marine algae, that is responsible for massive green tides in Goa… Continue reading New species of marine algae identified
A UNSW Australia-led team of researchers has discovered how algae that survive in very low levels of light are able to switch on and off a weird quantum phenomenon that occurs during photosynthesis…
The function in the algae of this quantum effect, known as coherence, remains… Continue reading Quantum biology: Algae evolved to switch quantum coherence on and off
Taking spirulina platensis as a dietary supplement may help prevent pancreatic cancer, one of the most lethal malignancies in humans, according to a study recently published in Annals of Hepatology… Continue reading Spirulina platensis may prevent pancreatic cancer
The Eel River Recovery Project is kicking off its summer citizen monitoring season with an outdoor education event at Tooby Park on the South Fork Eel River near Garberville on Sunday, June 22 starting at noon… Continue reading Algae and fish outdoor workshop Sunday, June 22
