Session 18
Microbial Science and Technology IV – Algae
Thursday, May 1, 2014: 1:00 PM-4:25 PM
Grand Ballroom A-C, lobby level (Hilton Clearwater Beach)
Ben Wu - Sandia National Laboratory, Livermore, CA and Shulin Chen - Washington State University, Pullman, WA
Algal cultures have emerged as a microbial platform with high potential for production of fuels, lipids, and chemicals. This session will focus on discovery of new algae strains, efficient growth of these organisms, the use of innovated open and closed production systems as well as the practicality of using those systems.
