Title: Enzymatic digestion of microalgal biomass for lipid, sugar, and protein recovery

Abstract

Methods for the recovery of lipids, sugars, and proteins from microbial biomass by enzymatic digestion are disclosed. The methods involve treating microalgae with a fungal acid protease, or with a mixture of at least one protease and at least one amylase.
