Algal Biotechnology

Algal biotechnology is a technology developed using algae. The objective of the Micro algal Biotechnology Group is to further the understanding of the ecology of microalgae. This will assist with the development of commercial-scale micro algal culturing techniques for the production of bioactive compounds, aquaculture feed, fine chemicals, and renewable fuels. Additionally, environmental applications such as CO2 bioremediation, control of excessive algal growth and development of management strategies for water supply managers are investigated. Transgenesis in algae is a complex and fast-growing technology. Selectable marker genes, promoters, reporter genes, transformation techniques, and other genetic tools and methods are already available for various species and currently ~25 species are accessible to genetic transformation. Fortunately, large-scale sequencing projects are also planned, in progress, or completed for several of these species.

  • Large Scale Algal Bioprocesses
  • Extraction and Conversion of Microalgal Lipids
  • Applications of Algae in Food and Feed
  • Algae Based Technology to Treat Industrial Effluents
  • Algal Farming for Biofuels and Other Valuable Products
  • Bio-Remediation Using Algae
