Scientists Find Malaria Vaccine from Algae

Researchers at University of California have produced a malarial vaccine candidate from algae that prevents the transmission of the parasite from host to mosquito. They introduced  Pfs25 (a protein found on the surface of malaria parasite’s reproductive cells) gene, into the algae to produce the properly folded Pfs25 protein. Antibodies against the Pfs25 protein can halt […]

Wavelength-selective Plasmonics for Enhanced Cultivation of Microalgae

Scientists from Canada have conducted an experiment to increase the growth rate of microalgae in photobioreactors using plasmonic substrate. Modular photobioreactors were constructed with different reflective substrates including arrays of plasmonic nanodisks, broadband reflectors, and untreated glass. The results showed that the growth rate of microalgae increased greatly when grown in photobioreactors equipped with the […]

Scientists Find New Process for Algae Oil Production

Scientists at PNNL have created a new process for the production of biocrude oil from algae in a few minutes. The process uses heat and pressure to change the algae to biocrude oil by chemical and physical reactions. The biocrude can later be converted to aviation fuel, gasoline and diesel by using conventional refining technology. […]

Research Finds Cyanobacterium for Biotech Applications
