Research Project Title:

Optimization of Micro-Algae for Lipid Production

abstract:This research project will focus on using micro-algae to produce biodiesel. An optimized method for quantifying the lipid produced by micro-algae (S.limacinum) will be developed. Lipid production within the micro-algae will be optimized by altering the cell culture parameters such as the carbon source, temperature, and agitation rate.
