Marine Algae Just As Capable As Fresh Water Algae In Producing Biofuels
2012-11-26 20:17:38

University of California, San Diego The scientists genetically engineered marine algae to produce five different kinds of industrially important enzymes and say the same process they used could be employed to enhance the yield of petroleum-like compounds from these salt water algae. Their achievement is detailed in a paper published online in the current issue of the scientific journal Algal Research. The ability to genetically transform marine algae into a biofuel crop is important...
