Algal discovery aids cancer research

A team of Michigan State University algae researchers have discovered a cellular “snooze button” that has the potential to improve biofuel production and offer insight into the early stages of cancer. The discovery that the protein CHT7 is a likely repressor…

MSU researchers boost oil in leaves with genes from algae

Michigan State University researchers have successfully employed an algal gene involved in oil production to engineer a plant that stores lipids in its leaves, a development they feel could enhance…
