Los Alamos National Lab makes a case for improving algae genome data

June 16, 2022 |

In New Mexico, research by scientists from the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) suggest that, as the availability of algae genomes expands, the data about novel algae genome sequences is becoming increasingly unreliable and may leave out critical information about the strains’ DNA. Although there are more algae sequences available now than ever before, the […]

Algae behave differently from each other, clues can help for biofuel production

Algae behave differently from each other, clues can help for biofuel production

October 17, 2021 |

In New Mexico, in a recent project funded by the Advanced Algal Systems (AAS) Program, researchers from LANL and the New Mexico Consortium are exploring the biofuel candidate Chlorella sorokiniana, developing genetic engineering tools in order to introduce novel traits that would allow the algae to grow faster and accumulate more biomass for biofuel production. […]
