The Niyogi lab will work in close collaboration with other researchers at UC Berkeley, LBNL, PNNL, and Colorado School of Mines to genetically engineer Auxenochlorella protothecoides. By harnessing this microalga’s naturally high capacity for lipid biosynthesis, the aim of the project is to develop Auxenochlorella as a photosynthetic platform for production of biofuels and bioproducts to decrease our dependence on fossil fuels.
