Microalgae have garnered increasing interest over the past few years for their ability to produce valuable products ranging from therapeutic proteins to biofuels.  In particular, the potential of microalgae-based biofuels is creating a great deal of excitement due to the innate ability of microalgae to synthesize high levels of oils and hydrocarbons.  The potential of algae-based products is therefore well recognized, but the full potential of microalgae-based production systems is still unrealized.  The genetic engineering of microalgae may be necessary in order to increase the concentrations of target metabolites to acceptable levels.  Our laboratory is focused on developing new genetic and molecular techniques to help improve the production of target compounds in microalgae.
