aboabs_logoThe 7th Annual Algae Biomass Summit, taking place in Orlando, Florida, September 30-October 3 will showcase its Algal Biology and Research track with nearly 30 presentations by leading research scientists and experts from universities, companies and several national laboratories. The sessions will discuss the latest algae strains, innovative feedstocks and cultivation methods for wide-scale commercial production of algae-based products.

“The breath of expertise demonstrated by this year’s Summit biology track speakers is truly outstanding,” said Dr. Al Darzins, R&D Director — Infrastructure Sector at the Gas Technology Institute and chair of the Summit’s Biology Track. “The breakout session topics are designed to engage Summit attendees in serious discussions regarding how biologists, working closely together with engineers, can help bring cost-effective algal-based products to the commercial marketplace.”

Highlights among the Biology and Research presentations include:

  • Cultivation Ecology

Robert McBride, Sapphire Energy Inc.
Open Algae Pond Ecology

  • Photosynthesis and CO2 Fixation

Shaun Bailey, Director, Photosynthesis Research, Synthetic Genomics International
Global Transcriptional Regulators of the Photo-Acclimation Response to Irradiance

  • Algal Strain Development
