Chinese researchers slash amoeba challenges in using key aquaculture species for biofuel

December 20, 2022 |

In China, Phaeodactylum tricornutum is a commercially important species that is widely used in aquaculture. It also has the potential to be used as biofuel. However, contamination of algivorous microzooplankton has been one of the main constraints in P. tricornutum large-scale cultivation. Therefore, isolating a new strain with grazing resistance is important for overcoming zooplankton […]
