Cellana, Galil Algae Deal to Further Algae Nutraceuticals Research?

A new deal between Cellana, a California-based maker of algae-based products, and Israel’s Galil Algae Cooperative Agriculture Society Limited could have interesting implications for biodiesel (possibly a negative implication here) and for nutraceuticals (really positive here). This Cellana news release says the partnership looks to combine the industrial qualities of Cellana’s ReNew™ Algae – high-value […]

Suicidal Algae Help Their Relatives and Harm Their Rivals

Pierre Durand, an evolutionary biologist at the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, has been trying to figure out why. In an earlier study with a single-celled algae called Chlamydomonas reinhardtii, Durand grew cells in the liquid where other cells had previous killed themselves (in response to heat stress). The algae grew faster than usual in […]

Algae Strain Selection- An Intensive Exercise!

It’s not easy to select the right algae strain  say many scientists and its absolutely true.. It is not just isolating a algae from a natural environment and culturing it and transferring  them into a open-ponds, PBR’s, fermenter or whatever. It is a lot more… According to the DOE, there are three parameters required to […]
