Microalgae biofuels: A critical review of issues, problems and the way forward.
Culturing of microalgae as an alternative feedstock for biofuel production has received a lot of attention in recent years due to their fast growth rate and ability to accumulate high quantity of lipid and carbohydrate inside their cells for biodiesel and bioethanol production, respe...
Comparative analysis of the molecular mechanisms controlling the initiation of chromosomal DNA replication in yeast and in mammalian cells.
We investigate the evolutionary conservation of the molecular machinery orchestrating DNA replication initiation both in yeast and in mammalian cells, highlighting a remarkable conservation of the general architecture of this central biological mechanism. Many steps are conserved down to molecular d...
Microbial production of polyhydroxybutyrate with tailor-made properties: an integrated modelling approach and experimental validation.
The microbial production of polyhydroxybutyrate (PHB) is a complex process in which the final quantity and quality of the PHB depend on a large number of process operating variables. Consequently, the design and optimal dynamic operation of a microbial process for the efficient produ...
Corrigendum to “Biodiesel production with immobilized lipase: A review” [Biotechnology Advances 2010; 28(5): 628–34]
Emerging high-throughput approaches to analyze bioremediation of sites contaminated with hazardous and/or recalcitrant wastes.
We discuss various high--throughput techniques and their possible--or already demonstrated-application to assess biotreatment of contaminated environments....
Toward practical, DNA-based diagnostic methods for parasitic nematodes of livestock - Bionomic and biotechnological implications
Parasitic nematodes of livestock have a major economic impact worldwide. In spite of the health problems caused by nematodes and advances toward the development of vaccines and new therapeutic agents against some of them, relatively limited attention has been paid to the need for improved, practical...
Yeast cell adhesion on oligopeptide modified surfaces
Patenting human gene therapy.
Nucleic acid probes for the food industry.
Recombinant DNA technology has revolutionised microbiological analysis by providing rapid and sensitive methods for the direct detection and identification of organisms. These advances have been most successfully applied to basic research and to clinical microbiology. Continued improvements in the t...
Improvement of Rhizobium inoculants by mutation, genetic engineering and formulation.
The use of mutation and genetic engineering techniques have resulted in Rhizobium strains with improved characteristics. The latter approach can provide improvement and new traits not achievable previously. Enhanced commercial Rhizobium inoculants, however, still rely solely on traditional approache...
