Algae oil via diauxic growth methods?
Do you know that oil derived from algae is an exciting renewable fuel possibility? – see Oilgae for more.
A couple of questions asked at the Oil from Algae yahoo group
1. Has anyone tried to get algae to produce more oil via diauxic growth methods on diffrent media (chu#10 ect.)
2. How easy is it to make Nile red cell stain from nile blue and H2S04? The aquatox lab where I work just acquired a photocytometer to count and seperate pathogens, and Im thinking I can use it to seperate low lipid strains from high lipid strains to artificially select a culture with high lipid ratios.
