Genome based analysis of the metabolism, ecology, and evolution of oil-producing microalgae

【ENERGY】 Tanaka Unit

  • Overview

    Marine microalgae attract much attention as a feedstock for production of bioenergy, foods, and pharmaceuticals. Prof. Tanaka has been establishing the database of genomic and metabolic information of diverse marine microalgae in collaboration with Dr. Bowler, who is a pioneer of microalgal genomics. Prof. Tanaka promotes metabolic analyses of the oleaginous microalgae accumulating high amount of lipids with Dr. Zurzolo, who is an expert of intracellular trafficking research, towards efficient production of biofuels and pharmaceuticals. Further cooperation with active collaborators under the GIR framework contributes to development of novel technology for energy production and storage, as well as energy saving processes.
