Selenocystamine improves protein accumulation in chloroplasts of eukaryotic green algae

[USA] Eukaryotic green algae have become an increasingly popular platform for recombinant proteins production. In particular, Chlamydomonas reinhardtii, has garnered increased attention for having the necessary biochemical Continue reading Selenocystamine improves protein accumulation in chloroplasts of eukaryotic green algae

Swimming Algae Offer Penn Researchers Insights Into Living Fluid Dynamics

None of us would be alive if sperm cells didn’t know how to swim, or if the cilia in our lungs couldn’t prevent fluid buildup. But we know very little about the dynamics of so-called “living fluids,” those containing cells, microorganisms or other biological structures.

“Living fluids are found everywhere, from Continue reading Swimming Algae Offer Penn Researchers Insights Into Living Fluid Dynamics

3D Printed Algae Provides Oxygen Source for Growing Bioprinted Human Cells

Bioprinting promises to change the way we look at the field of medicine forever. As several companies are already printing living human tissue, it’s only a matter of time before many ailments can be halted via this incredible technology. Although much research still needs to be done, and experts in many different fields will need to work together for a common cause, ultimately we will one Continue reading 3D Printed Algae Provides Oxygen Source for Growing Bioprinted Human Cells

Redirecting electrons boosts algal hydrogen generation

Scientists in Germany have developed a highly targeted metabolic engineering technique to control the flow of electrons produced by the initial stages of photosynthesis in microalgae, and used it to increase hydrogen production by a factor of five… Continue reading Redirecting electrons boosts algal hydrogen generation

Researching algae in space and extreme environments

By sending algae into space, a U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) scientist and his team will be able to study some of the key mechanisms that control plant growth and photosynthesis.

The work by plant physiologist Autar Mattoo with USDA’s Agricultural… Continue reading Researching algae in space and extreme environments
