  • Patent number: 10006071
    Abstract: Methods are provided to control the harvesting of desired metabolic byproducts from hypersaline photosynthetic algae. Methods are presented to control secretion of said metabolic products in monocultures and co-cultures after accumulation of byproducts. The metabolic byproduct secretion is controlled by controlling caspase activity.
    Type: Grant
    Filed: December 16, 2014
    Date of Patent: June 26, 2018
    Assignee: Institute for System Biology
    Inventors: Nitin S. Baliga, Monica V. Orellana, Kenia Whitehead, W. Lee Pang
  • Publication number: 20150132799
    Abstract: Enhanced yields of photosynthetically fixed carbon produced by hypersaline photosynthetic algae are provided by co-culturing with a halophilic archaea. Further, methods are provided to control harvesting of desired metabolic products from hypersaline photosynthetic algae by controlling caspase activity.
    Type: Application
