Comparison of several methods for effective lipid extraction from microalgae.
The microwave oven method was identified as the most simple, easy, and effective for lipid extraction from microalgae. Expand
Selection of microalgae for lipid production under high levels carbon dioxide.
To select microalgae with a high biomass and lipid productivity, Botryococcus braunii, Chlorella vulgaris, and Scenedesmus sp. were cultivated with ambient air containing 10% CO(2) and flue gas. TheExpand
Harvest of Scenedesmus sp. with bioflocculant and reuse of culture medium for subsequent high-density cultures.
The results suggest that the flocculation method presented here is efficient and bio-friendly, and allows the reuse of the flocculated medium, thereby contributing to the economic cultivation and harvest of microalgae. Expand
Growth inhibition of bloom‐forming cyanobacterium Microcystis aeruginosa by rice straw extract
This work has shown the ability to inhibit the growth of the bloom‐forming cyanobacterium Microcystis aeruginosa using a rice straw extract using a Rice straw extract. Expand
Annual variation of Microcystis genotypes and their potential toxicity in water and sediment from a eutrophic reservoir.
A denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis profile analysis of the mcyJ genotypes performed to monitor any changes in the toxic Microcystis population showed the appearance of new genotypes and the disappearance of existing genotypes in the reservoir water collected during the summer months, when compared with the profile for the samples collected in spring and autumn.

Correlations between environmental factors and toxic and non-toxic Microcystis dynamics during bloom in Daechung Reservoir, Korea
Cell densities of toxic and non-toxic Microcystis were strongly related, implying that their growth may be governed by the same environmental factors, and eutrophication together with global warming could lead to more frequent toxic blooms. Expand
Monitoring approaches for a toxic cyanobacterial bloom.
This review critically evaluates monitoring approaches that are applicable to cyanobacterial blooms, especially those that focus on the presence of Microcystis, in freshwater bodies, and ranked according to their cost, speed, sensitivity and selectivity. Expand
Alternative alert system for cyanobacterial bloom, using phycocyanin as a level determinant.
An alert system with superior predictive ability based on high-throughput phycocyanin measurements appears feasible, and this would become far more simple to conduct measurements without the need for expensive equipment, thereby enabling the monitoring of entire lakes more precisely and frequently.

Effects of photoperiod on nutrient removal, biomass production, and algal-bacterial population dynamics in lab-scale photobioreactors treating municipal wastewater.
The results indicated that the photoperiod condition has remarkable impacts on adjusting nutrient removal, producing microbial biomass, and altering algal-bacterial population dynamics as an important operating parameter in the algal wastewater treatment. Expand
Effect of nitrogen limitation on oleic acid biosynthesis in Botryococcus braunii
The influence of nitrogen (N) deficiency on the cell growth and intracellular lipid production of the alga Botryococcus braunii UTEX 572 was investigated. Biomass concentration and lipid content ofExpand
