The impact of nitrogen starvation on the dynamics of triacylglycerol accumulation in nine microalgae strains.
Microalgae-derived lipids are an alternative to vegetable and fossil oils, but lipid content and quality vary among microalgae strains. Selection of a suitable strain for lipid production isExpand

Simultaneous growth and neutral lipid accumulation in microalgae.
In this paper the hypothesis was tested whether TAG accumulation serves as an energy sink when microalgae are exposed to an energy imbalance caused by nutrient limitation. In our continuous cultureExpand
