Algae Research Overview
There are tens of thousands of known species of microalgae, some of which have been shown to be excellent sources of biofuels, foods, feedstock, nutraceuticals, health foods, industrial chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and other major commercial products.
These often benefit from their ability to grow across a wide-range of environmental conditions with smaller acreage requirement and much shorter harvesting times when compared to equivalent yields of traditional crops such as corn, sugar cane, and others.
As such, algae has become an important area of research and development in the biomass, biofuel, and bioproduct arenas. Phenometrics products were created specifically to help further that research.
