Green hydrogen, courtesy of algal proteins

Since hydrogen fuel cells produce electricity, we are increasingly thinking about hydrogen as a successor to crude oil. But where will the hydrogen come from? Its ecologically cleanest source could be from algae bioreactors, partly thanks to an international team of researchers who have for the first time…

On Developing an Algal-based Cure for Malaria

Over the past ten years, work from our lab has identified mechanisms of chloroplast gene expression that have allowed for development of recombinant protein expression and metabolic engineering in the algal…

UCLA Researchers Develop Algal Proteins for Biofuels

Two types of raw materials are currently used for biorefining and biofuel production: carbohydrates and lipids. Biofuels like ethanol are derived from carbohydrate raw materials such as sugars…
