6th Annual Algae Biomass Summit

6th Annual Algae Biomass Summit

The 6th Annual Algae Biomass Summit, taking place in Denver, Co. September 24-27 will showcase more than 30 presentations in its Biology track from researchers and scientists at leading companies, universities and national labs during the course of the three-day event. These sessions are designed for highly technical audiences and will do a “deep dive” into new research, breakthroughs and insights related to algae biology.

“We’ve attracted and recruited an incredible group of leaders whose work is key to unlocking the full potential of algae as a feedstock for fuel, food, feed and other co-products,” said Phil Pienkos, Principal Group Manager, Applied Sciences for the National Bioenergy Center at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, and Chair of the Algae Biomass Summit. “Anyone interested in or involved in the technical aspects of algal biology will not want to miss the presentations.”

Highlights among the nearly three dozen presentations include:

  • Isoprenoid Metabolism in the Diverse Lineages of Microalgae
    Jürgen Polle, Professor, Biology Department & Associate Director, Aquatic Research & Environmental Assessment Center, Brooklyn College of CUNY
  • Increased CO2 Fixation Biomass and Lipid in Transgenic Chlamydomonas without Nitrogen Starvation
    Martin Spalding, Professor, Genetics, Development and Cell Biology, Iowa State University
  • Chlamy Chloroplast ExpressionVHH Antibodies and Protein Delivery Domains and VHH Antibodies for Oral Therapeutics
    George Oyler, Associate Professor, Biochemistry, University of Nebraska-Lincoln
  • Comparative Study of Predators in Mass Cultures of Chlorella, Scenedesmus and Nannochloropsis
    Qiang Hu, Professor, CTI Applied Sciences & Math, Arizona State University
  • Structure and Regulation of Triacylglycerol Synthesis Network in Wild Oleaginous Algae Nannochlorops oceanic
    Jian Xu, Group Leader, Functional Genomics/Director, BioEnergy Genome Center, QIBEBT

The Biology Track is one of four tracks, plus plenary sessions and posters, which comprise the agenda for the Algae Biomass Summit. In total, there are expected to be more than 90 live and 120 poster presentations during the Summit.

The 2011 Algae Biomass Summit was attended by more than 800 stakeholders from more than 25 countries across the algae industry. Organizers are expecting a larger turnout for this year’s event.
