Potential of disk-shaped small structures, coccoliths, to promote efficient bioenergy production

2 septiembre 2015

Researchers have shown that coccolith disks made of calcium carbonate in emEmiliania huxleyi/em, one of the promising biomass resources, potentially perform roles in reducing and enhancing the light that enters the cell by light scattering. Elucidation of the physiological significance of coccolith formation in emE. huxleyi/em can help promote efficient bioenergy production using microalgae.
