The Brazilian seaweed assemblage currently comprises 770 taxa, distributed along 7,367 km of coastline with highly diverse ecological conditions, suggesting a high biotechnological potential for these species. Studies on seaweed biotechnology in Brazil began in 1948 and have produced extensive published information that is presently scattered in many sources. This manuscript presents an overview of biotechnology studies on seaweeds that were carried out in Brazil, from the earliest through 2012… CONTINUE READING
