Which of the following are ways to transform genes in diatoms?
What is used for DNA insertion through conjugation in diatoms?
The first picture is a diatom grown in a nitrogen free environment, and the second is showing one grown in a nitrate environment. What does the green color indicate?
What is RNA translated into?
Thioesterase from vascular plants made the C. Reinhardtii algae produce as much fatty acids as endogenous thioesterase.
There was a specific protein interface interaction that made only endogenous thioesterase effective at increasing fatty acids in C. Reinhardtii.
What molecules are targeted for biofuel production in microalgae?
Which of the following are reasons that a genetically-engineered algae may have low yields of a bioproduct?
Metabolic engineering is altering an organism’s flow of ______ towards a desired end product.
After sequencing the RB-TnSeq Library to identify the locations of transposon insertions, large segments of the genome that lack any transposon insertions indicated what?
It is not useful to remove essential genes in metabolic engineering.
These are essential and if removed would kill the organism.
