Harvesting of the cells can became the 50 % of the total cost of algal biomass production.


Flocculation is the aggregation of individual microalgae of into flocks of large size to fast settle of microalgae from the medium, making microalgae harvesting straightforward and cheap.

In PhycoGenetics we are working for improving our understanding about agglutination of algal cells and engineering through expression of key genes the autoflocullation process in microalgae.
