Photobioreactor enables systems biology studies of cyanobacteria

A novel photobioreactor designed and developed at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory for cultivating photosynthetic bacteria and microalgae will be featured in the journal Bioresource Technology. PNNL researchers are using ...

'Blood test' for crook corals

(Phys.org)—Australian researchers are harnessing a world-first scientific discovery to develop a stress-test for coral, to measure how coral reefs are being impacted by pressures from climate change and human activity.

Super first feed soon ready to serve

They can be stored for months and then hatch in seawater within 24 hours. Production of copepods, the ultimate live feed for Ballan wrasse and the fry of other marine fish species, can soon be industrialised.

Viruses linked to algae that control coral health

Scientists have discovered two viruses that appear to infect the single-celled microalgae that reside in corals and are important for coral growth and health, and they say the viruses could play a role in the serious decline ...

Microalgae 'bulging with biofuel potential'

MISA researchers from SARDI have isolated and evaluated a ‘super strain’ of a native microalgae species that could form the basis of a local biofuels industry.
