Title: Oil from Microalgae (Science and Technology Brief)

Researchers from the Solar Energy Research Institute's Biofuels Program have collected and studied more than 100 species of microalgae from desert and saline environments. From these, SERI researchers have identified a number of lipid-producing species and have made cultures and literature concerning them available to researchers through its microalgae culture collection.
