PHYCONET members recently attended a workshop on algal biotechnology at the Cawthron Institute in Nelson, New Zealand. This networking event, sponsored by BBSRC, The Cawthron Institute, CBMNet, PHYCONET, the Microbiology Society and the British High Commission, brought together algal researchers and industry representatives from New Zealand and the UK to discuss progress and opportunities in the exploitation of microalgae, particularly as feedstock for aquaculture and as sustainable sources of novel bio-products. The report from this workshop is available here.
