Discovering which algae species is best suited to make biofuel is no small task. Researchers have tried to evaluate algae in test tubes, but often find lab results don’t always mirror what happens when grown in outdoor ponds. A new, approximately $6-million collaborative project is using a unique climate-simulating laboratory system…
