In order to study the effects of different nitrogen source and concentrationon the growth rate and fatty acid composition, a marine microalga Ellipsoidion sp. with a high content of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) wascultured in media with different nitrogen sources and concentrations.During the pre-logarithmic phase, the alga grew faster with ammoniumas N source than with nitrate, but the reverse applied during thepost-logarithmic phase. The alga grew poorly in N-free mediumor medium with urea as… CONTINUE READING
