Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy as a method to study lipid accumulation in oleaginous yeasts

Abstract

BACKGROUND Oleaginous microorganisms, such as different yeast and algal species, can represent a sustainable alternative to plant oil for the production of biodiesel. They can accumulate fatty acids (FA) up to 70% of their dry weight with a predominance of (mono)unsaturated species, similarly to what plants do, but differently from animals. In addition… (More)
