Microalgal Biotechnology

Microalgae are photosynthetic microorganisms with high biotechnological potential. The objective of this research line is the study of the physiology and ecology of microalgae. In addition, we aim to promote the sustainable development of microalgae-based clean technologies.

Research areas:

  1. Isolation and identification of new microalgae strains.
  2. Basic studies of new microalgae strains to determine their biotechnological potential.
  3. Microalgae-based biorefineries.
