Boosting Algae Biomass Productivity by Algae Engineering

Genetic engineering research at the Iowa State University reveals that the algae biomass can be boosted by 50-80% by expressing or activating genes that promote photosynthesis. The researchers have worked on two genes – LCIA and LCIB — which  when expressed capture more CO2  increase the biomass productivity. However, when algae live in an environment with enough […]
