Micro-algae as sources of fine chemicals

Borowitzka, M.A. (1986) Micro-algae as sources of fine chemicals. Microbiological Sciences, 3 (12). pp. 372-375.


In future, phototrophic micro-algae may be the source of a range of valuable fine chemicals including carotenoids, vitamins, polysaccharides, and essential fatty acids. The screening of these organisms for biologically active molecules has great potential.
