2nd Edition of the EnhanceMicroAlgae Catalogue of Strains Now Available

The University of Manchester team have complied a Microalgae Strain catalogue containing information on a large variety of strains. The catalogue is part of the deliverables from WP7, led by Swansea University, and includes a wealth of material on strain cultivation, composition, and characteristics. This will be maintained and updated over time.


First released in September 2019 with a revised version available earlier this year, the catalogue has been updated further, with the most recent edition available now clicking here.

  1. Please note that you have numerous taxonomic errors in this catalogue including the use of some names that have been changed over 20 years ago in addition to more recent taxonomic revisions. This is an important piece of work to share and it is equally important to present the facts correctly. Please review all scientific names you have used and revise. There are three entries I can see straight away that are absolutely not correct. These would be correct within the majority of current strain catalogues including CCAP which I see you have used in part.

      Hi Andrew, Thanks so much for your comment.

      I have spoken to the authors of this catalogue, and they have replied with the following:

      “Thank you very much for your comment. Upon your observation, we will make a careful review of the document paying special attention to the names of the strains. We are very sorry if this has caused confusion, we will try to solve it as soon as possible”.
