Left Column: 

Mass production of algae in designed photobioreactors can produce large quantities of high-value products (such as polyunsaturated fatty acids, carotenoids, polysaccharides, and biologically active substances) for human and animal consumption.

LARB's research in algal biotechnology has been supported by:

  • NSF-SBIR program
  • Algaen Corporation
