A comparison of methods for the non-destructive fresh weight determination of filamentous algae for growth rate analysis and dry weight estimation

The determination of rates of macroalgal growth and productivity via temporal fresh weight (FW) measurements is attractive, as it does not necessitate the sacrifice of biomass. However, there is no standardised method for FW analysis; this may lead to potential discrepancies when determining growth rates or productivity and make literature comparison problematic. This study ...

Comparison of screening methods for high-throughput determination of oil yields in micro-algal biofuel strains

Stephen P. Slocombe QianYi Zhang Kenneth D. Black John G. Day Michele S. Stanley The phenotypic and phylogenetic diversity of micro-algae capable of accumulating triacylglycerols provides a

Biogas from Macroalgae: is it time to revisit the idea?

The economic and environmental viability of dedicated terrestrial energy crops is in doubt. The production of large scale biomass (macroalgae) for biofuels in the marine environment was first tested in the late 1960’s. The culture attempts failed due to the engineering challenges of farming offshore. However the energy conversion via anaerobic digestion was successful as the ...

A Model for Carbohydrate Metabolism in the Diatom Phaeodactylum tricornutum Deduced from Comparative Whole Genome Analysis

BackgroundDiatoms are unicellular algae responsible for approximately 20% of global carbon fixation. Their evolution by secondary endocytobiosis resulted in a complex cellular structure and metabolism compared to algae with primary plastids.Methodology/Principal FindingsThe whole genome sequence of the diatom Phaeodactylum tricornutum has recently been completed. We identified and ...
