Algae Genetic Research

Dr. Rebekah Waikel

Research has been initiated to identify novel enzymatic genes involved in lipid (oil) production in algae. Genes that produce enzymes that are directly involved in algal lipid production will be isolated and sequenced. Ultimately, the goal is to understand these genes, to be able to manipulate the expression of these genes for more efficient production of biofuel from algae.
