Thursday, November 19th, 12 – 1:30 pm Algae
are more than just the gooey stuff at the bottom of your fish tank. Algae
can be used as a sustainable alternative energy source. At this Midday Science Cafe, you’ll learn how studying the regulation of photosynthesis and metabolism of algae
— the process and rate at which sunlight and carbon is used to produce energy — can help provide green strategies for biofuels and bioproducts. In addition, you’ll learn how scientists use genome sequencing to characterize algae
and select for traits ideal for bioenergy and biotech applications. Learn more!
Webinars will be recorded. If you require captioning to access a pre-recorded event, please contact Dione Rossiter at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please expect 7-10 days for captioning to be provided. Photo Credit: Dr. Tisza Bell
