Identifying the genetic changes that impact lipid production in microalgae

Algenuity, Spicer Consulting Limited and  Rothamsted Research (RRES)  were awarded SPARK funding in 2013 to perform a l ipidomics screen of a Chlorella sp insertional gene trap strain bank. Microalgae represent commercial opportunities with regard to the breadth of biomolecules that they naturally produce as well as their comparatively rapid growth cycles and their...

Lipid factories: Modifying algae for enhanced productivity

The Algal Bioenergy Special interest Group has published a case study on the development of genetic tools to create strains of Chlorella with optimal and commercially desired lipid profiles. Microalgae are a rich source of commercially important molecules and play a key role in ecosystem services. In this project, micro algae are engineered to enhance the...
