Improving Algal Strains with Genomics: The Digest’s 2020 Multi-Slide Guide to Genetic and Synthetic Biology Tools for Algae Productivity

February 27, 2020 |

Wild type algal strains don’t have the productivity and robust growth characteristics needed to push algae forward as a biofuel feedstock, but researchers are working on changing that. Stephen Mayfield from the University of California San Diego, shared the latest research developments at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Bioenergy Technologies Office (BETO) 2019 Project Peer Review on how they are using genomics, synthetic biology, high-throughput screening methods, and breeding technologies to improve algal strains and value added co-products that will allow algal biofuels to compete economically with other fuels within 5 to 10 years.
