This course will provide an overview of the growing field of algae biotechnology by introducing the basics of photosynthetic bio-manufacturing. The topics covered will include the biofuels, feeds and foods, nutraceuticals, industrial enzymes and therapeutic proteins. it will also cover the basics of algae biology and its importance as a feedstock, the biochemical, genetic and molecular approaches being developed to advance the next generation of bio-products, and the economical and global impacts of algal biomass production. Overall, the course will emphasize the importance of photosynthetic biomanufacturing development as a contributor to replacing the diminishing supplies of fossil fuels, reducing global warming, and creating a sustainable society.
