Micro-algae synthesize high levels of lipids, carbohydrates and proteins photoautotrophically, thus attracting considerable interest for the biotechnological production of fuels, environmental remediation, functional foods and nutraceuticals. Currently, only a few micro-algae species are grown commercially at large-scale, primarily for "health-foods" and(More)
Future algal biotechnology will need enhanced production strains, capable of more rapid growth, more efficient solar-energy conversion and/or higher levels of metabolite production. Almost certainly transgenic organisms will be used to ensure the cost-effective, economically viable production of a range of metabolites. As with all biotechnological(More)
