Algae

A surge of freshwater released from a Mississippi River spillway is fueling poisonous blue-green algae called cyanobacteria.
New research suggests that we will see deeper shades of blue and green by 2100.
Manatees are dying in America’s most biologically diverse waterway because of pollution.

Project Nourished combines molecular gastronomy with virtual reality to create limitless dining experiences. It uses 3D printed algae as the substrate, as well as a VR headset, an aromatic diffuser, a bone conduction transducer, a gyroscopic utensil, and a virtual cocktail glass. This technology has infinite possibilities and can also help with issues like weight management, diabetes and food allergies.
He went on to sequence the human genome (taking home the 2008 United States National Medal of Science), and he has now, in
As a proud born-and-bred Parisian, as an enthusiastic traveller, as someone who's been living abroad, I must confess that each time I go back home I'm shocked by some archaic features of the City of Lights.
In February, Nestle became the first major candy manufacturer in the U.S. to pledge to remove artificial flavors and colors
Algae is everywhere, it grows easily, and it's full of lipids that, when successfully extracted, have the perfect chemical makeup to be transformed into hydrocarbon fuel. The trick, as always, is to do the processing in a cost-effective and cost-efficient way, a goal that has been elusive so far. Enter Nevada-based Algae Systems.
It is amazing, spooky and utterly unacceptable for the citizens of a civilized nation to be deprived of safe and sufficient water because of pollution and inadequate infrastructure -- especially when they are perched at the edge of the Great Lakes.
Evolution is usually omitted in scientific projections of how global warming will affect the planet in coming decades because
NBC also reported that a 2013 red tide killed 273 endangered manatees. The manatees ate the toxic algae when it got too close
The effort to produce algae biofuels has been underway for many, many years, though you wouldn't know it given that there are still virtually none being produced at commercial scale. The hype about making "cheap, abundant fuels with nothing but sunlight and water" remains in spite of the reality on the ground.

"It's a very slow-moving process,” Wrenn said of the San Francisco Bay’s escalating problem. “But I think a lot of the treatment
In science prize standards, $10,000 is a modest amount. But the award is meant to facilitate Gates and von Oppen’s ability
Sara's work has garnered remarkable results, a eureka of sorts, which, according to Professor Anastasios Melis of UC Berkeley, is quite unique. She has been very clever, becoming an important figure in the algae as biofuel community. She managed to manipulate the cells in the algae in such a way that they yielded an amazing amount of oil. When Sara saw the results, she was sure something was wrong but there wasn't.
"No matter how you look at it, all things happening with climate change are favoring these blooms," he said. Several factors
