New publication from EMA partners at University of Manchester

EnhanceMicroaAlgae partners at University of Manchester have developed a new multi-scale model based on population-balance equations to describe the autotrophic cultivation of Haematococcus pluvialis, which can produce significant amounts of industrially important compounds. The model uses cell volume as the internal coordinate, and can describe cell growth, and lysis, making possible the description of the relationship between cell volume/transition, cell loss, and metabolic product availability.

Their work entitled A multiscale modelling approach for Haematococcus pluvialis cultivation under different environmental conditions” was recently published in Biotechnology Reports  (IF= 6.36) and is available in Open Source. You can read the article here.
