PHYCONET Annual Conference 2015
A delegate from the Microdroplets Group, University of Cambridge, has presented the work on the high-throughput screening of ethanol-producing cyanobacteria in a microdroplet platform. The Phyconet Annual Conference gathers experts within the microalgae academic and non-academic field. Issues such as genetic modification, parametrization, risk assessments, commercialization strategies or new technologies related to the microalgae field are treated. Dr. Sara Abalde-Cela has contributed by presenting their latest work for the detection of ethanol in droplets, highlighting the power of merging microdroplets with biotechnology in order to screen libraries of hugh value products cyanobacteria producers.
